WOMEX CONSULTANCY * Atlantic Music Expo Under Way in Cabo Verde
09-04-2014: The second edition of Atlantic Music Expo (AME) is currently under way in Praia, Cabo Verde with delegates enjoying some cracking musical talent from both sides of the Atlantic.
Taking place from 7 April 10 April, AME draws delegates from across the world to the archipelago for three days of workshops, conferences, live performances, special events and meetings.
AME's day and night showcases, full conference programme and evening street market provides the perfect setting for music professionals and artists to network, expand their contacts and activities on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and to discover the host country. AME takes place right before the renowned Kriol Jazz Festival, offering delegates the possibility to enjoy an even broader range of musical discoveries with a strong jazz flavour.
The first edition of AME attracted around 500 local and international delegates from almost 30 countries to the Cabo Verdean capital for three full days of vibrant transatlantic cultural exchange.
