WOMEX 13 CARDIFF * First Showcase Acts Confirmed
26-06-13: Over 850 high quality showcase proposals from around the globe were received for WOMEX 13, giving the WOMEX Jury the tricky task of selecting the cream of the crop to participate in this year's event.
Showcase Jury member Fruzsina Szép, Programme Director of Sziget Festival says:
"The 2013 WOMEX programme is like the real homemade super-delicious Hungarian Goulash Soup (Gulyás leves). Each 'ingredient' is essential to have THE perfect taste, with the feeling that you want to eat much more..."
A huge thank you to all five of the Showcase Samurai for the many hours they spent on the showcase selection and for their tireless enthusiasm.
The Showcase Festival page contains the first confirmed acts - which also includes Ghazalaw, who celebrate a fusion between Welsh folk songs and Indian Ghazal, proudly presented by WOMEX's host partner in 2013, Cerdd Cymru : Music Wales.
