Genre and language playlists are posted here every month, curated by IMPALA’s members to celebrate music in Europe today. The 20Tracks series of playlists highlights the independent sector in all its diversity.

The diversity of European independent record labels is all the more visible through the multiplicity of languages, as well as all the different musical genres they pioneer.

Each month we feature a genre and a language, so get your headphones on.
