    The use of ethnic music on any creative project is undoubtedly going to take that project to a completely new level thanks to its ability to conjure up images of its country or culture in the mind of those listening to it. Whether it be African drums, the delicate string tones of Japanese music, or the haunting tones of the pan pipes from South America, ethnic music just breathes new life and stirs up new found emotions even in those that have never traveled to those far flung lands.

    This type of music can greatly enhance any movie, slideshow, app, or presentation and can transform your project from just being good to being something that is then far superior. Indeed, it could be argued that viewers will already anticipate certain music as soon as they discover the part of the world that your project is dealing with and there is a sense of disappointment if that does not turn out to be the case

    Could you picture anything connected to Sub-Saharan Africa that did not contain the sound of drums? Could you imagine a project with a Middle Eastern theme without those Arabian influences that can be so powerful and create a sense of mystery surrounding it?

    With Melody Loops, you will be able to download royalty free mps wav files to use either as background music or as a main part of your project. Each track has authentic sounds from around the world that immediately identifies the country and culture that it is related to. We do not believe in just providing you with good music, but rather music that encapsulates your audience from start to finish.

    No matter if you wish to travel to the Far East, across Europe, Asia, or any continent in the world we have over 200 individual tracks that will transport you around the globe. Ethnic music is about more than just allowing people to identify the country that has inspired it, but rather it is about enhancing your project and allowing people to feel as if they are actually experiencing life in another part of the world.
