Formats Explained 

The WOMEX Conference programme is created based on an annual call for proposals. Our independent, international jury then chooses the final sessions - jam-packed with veteran speakers 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.
