World Music in the 2000s

North America

The decade of the 2000s saw the disappearance of many independent and major label-affiliated world music labels in North America. Some of the imprints that ceased operations include Blue Jackel, Narada, Triloka, and Palm Pictures. Alula Records was sold to Allegro Corporation in 2001.

Although smaller in number, new record companies were started, including Cumbancha, Barbès Records (a label associated with the Brooklyn club of the same name).

World Music Web sites

2001 saw the birth of World Music Portal, the web portal that later mutated into World Music Central.
