Greetings from Dan Talmo, co-host of WORT’s Global Revolutions, Monday mornings from 9am to noon. I will be attending the WOMEX World Music Expo in Budapest, Hungary from October 21 to 25.
WOMEX is an annual international conference of world music artists, agents, record labels, venues, and media reps. Through my upcoming reports, WORT listeners will have an inside view of the latest in international music happenings. Naturally, there will be plenty of live music with over 60 acts scheduled. How can we see them all! I’ll review what I see of note, and also report on new studio releases and who is on tour. As a teaser, here are links to some of the bands I’m anxious to see.
Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha
Agi Herczku and Her Band
