Since the introduction of the WOMEX Award in 1999, the list of extraordinary artists and professionals from our community deserving of this special praise has continued to grow. The award honours exceptional achievements in global music on the international level; musical excellence, social importance, commercial success, political impact, lifetime achievement – any or all of these might make one a worthy recipient.
We are very happy to present this year's Award Recipients:
WOMEX Artist Award 2020: Mónika Lakatos
WOMEX Professional Excellence Award 2020: L’Atelier des Artistes en Exil
Meet the Recipients.
