Annual WOMEX13 is about to heat up in Wales and IMEXSA will be there to promote South African music talent.
WOMEX13 will be hosted in Cardiff, Wales, from 23 -27 October, and is the most important event on the world music market.
WOMAX13 brings together professionals from the worlds of folk, roots, ethnic and traditional music in an extraordinary five-day event. This year’s event promises over 60 concerts featuring around 300 artists, a trade fair exhibiting in the region of 650 companies from over 90 countries, as well as more than 400 national and international journalists. Delegates can also attend conferences, a DJ summit and a documentary film exhibition.
Every year Independent Music Exporters South Africa (IMEXSA) ensures that emerging South African artists and independent musicians are effectively promoted at WOMAX, by providing a service that has the potential to kick start their careers on an international level. IMEXSA is a non-profit organisation focused on developing and increasing the number of music exporters in South Africa by identifying trade opportunities and assisting companies to take advantage of those opportunities.
In celebrating ground breaking new talent, diversity and creativity, IMEXSA will present Nomfusi and Shangaan Electro as part of the WOMAX13 Official Showcase Selection.
