Founded in Geneva in 1988 within the framework of the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie, the Cahiers de musiques traditionnelles took over from Cahiers d'ethnomusicologie in 2007. The journal is published annually, and each volume focuses on a theme, to which the top specialists in the discipline of ethnomusicology contribute. These theme issues are complemented by interviews, portraits and reports. The Cahiers is the only French-speaking ethnomusicology journal and, in the last few years, has become an indispensable tool for all music professionals, and a fascinating read for all involved in the music world. Since 1994, the Cahiers d’ethnomusicologie has become the academic organ of the Société Française d’Ethnomusicologie. For the open of the journal’s site, twenty issues are available online, including sixteen on open access in full text.
