The deadline for proposals for WOMEX 19 is Friday, 22 March 2019.
WOMEX explicitly welcomes proposals from all backgrounds and especially encourages proposals especially those which increase the diversity of the international music scene - be it of culture, region, gender, styles, performance tradition and more.
WOMEX is not only the most important meeting in the world music scene but the most diverse music meeting worldwide. Its musical spectrum is unparalleled in the international showcase performance market, ranging from the most traditional to the new global-local underground, embracing folk, roots, jazz, local and diaspora cultures as much as urban and electronic sounds from all over the globe.
