We're now accepting nominations for the World Music Torchbearer of the Year for the 2013 About.com Readers' Choice Awards. Nominees for World Music Torchbearer of the Year can be a band, artist, composer, or producer who live(s) and work(s) anywhere in the world. Nominees should be adding their unique voice and creative spirit to any specific genre of traditional music (again, from anywhere in the world), thus demonstrably keeping alive a crucial part of our greater artistic heritage. The artist/band should have either released recorded/composed work or played live shows within the past year. Tell us your favorite!
Please note that final nominations will be made from a tally of these nominations, so if you want to be a nominee, encourage your fans to nominate you!
