Since 1993, Centre National de la Musique has worked to develop popular and classical music made in France on an international scale.

Thanks to financial resources from both professional and institutional partners, Centre National de la Musique has built a worldwide network aimed at facilitating exchanges between French and foreign music professionals. Its 30-person team is spread worldwide from a Paris home office to a network of music experts located in Berlin, London and New York, and three regional attachés for music in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Centre National de la Musique has been actively present at Eurosonic Noorderslag since 2004
