WOMEX is the meeting place par excellence for music professionals involved in world music, folk or ethnical music and consists of a trade fair, a conference and a showcase programme. Last year, Belgium was represented by more than eighty professionals from Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia.
For this year’s edition as well, Flanders Arts Institute and Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques will coordinate the Belgian representation by setting up a Belgian booth and organising a network event. The booth will be available for delegates to distribute promotion material and meet other professionals. This year the Sahara stoner rock outfit Kel Assouf (Niger/Tunisia/Belgium) has been selected for the showcase programme.
