Finding fantastic new foot-tapping sing-along tunes is one of life’s great pleasures. In the past it’s not always been easy, but all that’s changed with digital music. Take Nokia Music with over 20 million totally free tracks for you to enjoy. There really is no easier way to discover something totally different.
The amazing, the unusual, the unknown
To celebrate the buzz of discovery Nokia Music recently launched a short film competition in collaboration with the Sundance London Film & Music Festival. The challenge to filmmakers was simple: Showcase the amazing, the unusual and the unknown music scenes in your cities. To do this they had to create a trailer for a short movie to be filmed on a Nokia Lumia 920.
