As Todd Puckhaber of SXSW states "I have been attending WOMEX for many years. The conference has proven to be an invaluable tool in shaping a stronger presence of global sounds at SXSW. It is the key networking opportunity for world music artists and professionals alike. I am pleased and honoured to have the WOMEX Showcase once again at SXSW."
