The WOMEX Conference programme is created based on an annual call for proposals. Our independent, international jury - the 7 samurai - then chooses the finale programme. Two of them select the conference. The programme is jam-packed full of veteran speakers, esteemed mentors and fresh young minds from all sectors of the music industry. Gather pearls of wisdom and musical inspiration throughout the WOMEX days at the Conference Sessions.
