WOMEX – the World Music Expo – is the most important international music meeting in the world and the biggest conference of the global music scene, featuring a trade fair, talks, films and a showcase festival.
[Ed] WOMEX and many delegates aim to strengthen the role of culture around the world and see their work in an even broader context than the refugee debate suggests. The world music community is able to – and needs to – contribute to cross-cultural understanding.
Around 2,500 professionals come together every October from more than 90 countries, making WOMEX not only the number one networking platform for the world music industry, but also the most diverse music meeting worldwide. Its musical spectrum is unparalleled in the international showcase festival scene, ranging from the most traditional to the new global local underground, embracing folk, roots, local and diaspora cultures and urban and electronic sounds from all over the globe as well as all musical juxtapositions of these. Jazz and classical are explicitly welcomed!
The annual WOMEX festivities commence with a grand Opening Concert, focusing on music from a particular country or region and celebrating the start of five days bursting with music, networking and cultural exchange. Every year, the WOMEX Opening concert sets the standard for the rest of the expo.
