On this site, you will find samples that you can listen to, download and use to compose a song for the Song Contest. If you have used a sample from the website for your song, you must give the name of the artist and the sample (see below for an example) when submitting your entry in order to comply with the copyright and usage rights.
Important: You may only use the samples exclusively for songs with which you participate in theSong Contest "Dein Song für EINE WELT!" (Your song for ONE WORLD) . If your song meets the entry criteria, it will be published on our website, on Soundcloud and also on YouTube if you submit a video. If you wish to continue using your song containing these samples, it is important that you always cite the name of the artist who provided the sample used. If for example you use the sample „70bpm Harp A“ by Zainab Lax, please write “Using the sample „70bpm Harp A“ by Zainab Lax”.
