See what some folks are calling: “The most important international professional market of world music of every kind. This international fair brings together professionals from the worlds of folk, roots, ethnic and traditional music and also includes concerts, conferences and documentary films. It contributes to networking as an effective means of promoting music and culture of all kinds across frontiers.” UNESCO Global Alliance for Cultural Diversity
“WOMEX, the biggest world music trade fair on the planet” The Australian
“World music fans and professionals must etch one event permanently into their diaries: the WOMEX conference, exhibition and festival! [â€¦] It was my first time attending this world music expo in Sevilla, and I am totally addicted now! In addition to meeting hundreds of bookers, labels, cultural promotion agencies and musicians, the highlight is catching 45 [49!] bands from around the world live in concert.” Madanmohan Rao, World Music Editor at Rave Magazine & RJ, India.
