Taste the Peninsula at the WOMEX 16 Opening

In less than a month, WOMEX hits Santiago de Compostela for a second time, offering us the opportunity to deepen our understanding of not only the region of Galicia but the Iberian peninsula as a whole. To this end, the WOMEX 16 Opening will be a musical journey entitled 'Iberians – Music Tapas Menu', directed by musician and producer Pedro Pascual.

The Opening will feature five performances of different musical flavours from Galicia, Aragon, the Basque Country and Catalonia. Together they will explore the richness of Iberia’s different languages, influences of other cultures and different identities, all just as rich and diverse as its cuisine: a musical tapas. More...

Hip Hop Activist Henry Arteaga Receives WOMEX Award

WOMEX 16 AWARDS - Hip Hop Activist Henry Arteaga Receives WOMEX Award Henry Arteaga, MC and band leader of the Colombian "Crew Peligrosos" will receive the WOMEX 16 Professional Excellence Award.
