Music folksonomies have an inherent loose and open semantics, which hampers their use in structured browsing and
recommendation. In this paper, we present a method for automatically obtaining a set of semantic facets underlying a folksonomy of music tags. The semantic facets are anchored upon the structure of the dynamic repository of
universal knowledge Wikipedia. We illustrate the relevance of the obtained facets for the description of tags
