Deemed "The most important international professional market of world music of every kind” by UNESCO Alliance for Global Diversity, WOMEX is an international fair that congregates artists from a broad spectrum of genres worldwide to present music concerts, conferences and documentary films. Their encouragement of networking serves as an effective means of promoting music and culture of all kinds. In just 13 years, WOMEX has grown to host over 2,800 delegates and 1,400 companies from 90 countries, and over 1,000 concert and festival bookers.

 

The following is the lineup of artists whose talents will be showcased at WOMEX 08:
