SummarySince 2001, Wax Poetics has been hailed as no magazine's equal in its fresh approach to independent music journalism. Wax Poetics delivers a unique mix of content that includes insightful articles on a wealth of famous and forgotten musicians from the past and present worlds of jazz, funk, soul, and hip-hop music.
In the Fall of 2008, Wax Poetics celebrated the launch of Wax Poetics Japan. Issue 1 was met by an enthused Japanese audience, finally able to enjoy the acclaimed musical periodical in their native tongue. Wax Poetics now has a dedicated team of sonic anthropologists abroad, publishing unique Japanese-language editions by utilizing Wax Poetics' extensive archives as well as generating fresh new content, never before seen in either hemisphere. You may not understand a word of it, but collectors will certainly want to own a few of these exotic editions.
