Free World Music Samples


Lately I have been incorporating plenty of worldly samples into my music. Not only does it help you formulate a signature sound (if that’s what you’re going for), I just like them. I’m always captivated by a unique instrument played like a pro.

To be honest, I contemplated not even sharing some of these sources, because they are indeed high quality. You might even find a sample or two that I’ve incorporated into my songs. Good thing I’m not selfish. I keep this list updated pretty often, so hopefully all the links are live and you’ll agree on the quality.

204 World Music Samples: From Music Radar, including bodhran, jaw harp, thumb piano, udu.

Ethnic & World Loops: A wide variety of things. Requires free account.

Antandra’s World Music Sample Pack: Not a huge pack, but unique.

Free Sound Samples Wiki: Not sure about royalties on these ones.

World Strings Samplephonics: A freebie pack made out of their premium offering.

Free World Music Megapack Vol. 1: A massive 1.6 GB pack.

Bauer’s Natural Sound Pack: Nice samples here from Bauer’s trips (the documentary is pretty cool too).
