WOMEX 2014

Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Hola from Santiago de Compostela!  Some Grand Performances' staffers are here to soak in the sights and sounds of the annual WOMEX (World Music Expo). Every year, WOMEX is held in a different European city; this time around, it's in north west Spain right above Portugal. 

WOMEX is made up of presenters (like us), artists, agents, managers, media, and more. For the next week, we'll wander the conference trade floor during the day and dance through some of the best world music showcases at night. What makes them the best? Well, more than 800+ bands apply to showcase but only a select few get asked - so we know we're going to hear the good stuff! 

The showcase concerts are where we get to discover new music to maybe bring to Grand Performances (DakhaBrakha was Leigh Ann's WOMEX find in 2011). It's also a great opportunity to see some of our old favorites presenting new music. We'll make sure to say 'hi' to Baloji, Bostich + Fussible and the El Gusto Orchestra for you. 

Stay tuned for more! You can follow our journey on Instagram @grandperfs #gptravels
