04-10-2013: The WOMEX 13 Professional Excellence Award recipient, Festival au Désert, will receive a donation as a mark of WOMEX's support.
Acknowledging the Festival's relentless approach to cultivating the cultural scene on a local level under the most difficult circumstances, WOMEX's Director of Media and Communications, Anna Pötzsch, had this to say:
"Festival au Désert in Northern Mali has never shied away from a challenge, overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds to continually bring the sounds and sights of the Sahara to the world. We are beyond thrilled to support Festival au Désert and cannot wait for it to make a triumphant return to Mali in January next year."
