Retimbrar with Uxía
Every year, WOMEX kicks off with an Opening night, highlighted by the Opening Concert, which focusses on a specific country or musical region and is curated and produced by experts from that area. It celebrates the start of five bustling days bursting with music, networking and cultural exchange and sets the standard for the rest of the expo.
For this special WOMEX 2021 Opening, we research, experiment with, and reinterpret the roots of traditional Portuguese music in all directions.
Porto ReFolk Express aims to present itself as a showcase of folk music made in Portugal and its intersection with different artistic languages; reinventing and uniting the sonorities, voices, styles, imagination and instruments from Portuguese popular culture.
