For our third report from WOMEX, we summarize some "artist discoveries" or highlights from several attendees. What a diversity of perspectives on what showcasing artists were great or new!
President, CN Management
Faiz Ali Faiz and his Qawwali Group - The power of the ensemble and to hear the incredible voice of Faiz Ali Faiz
DJ Dunkelbunt - Incredible (a fun) journey to the music of the Balkans
BajoFondo TangoClub - The finest of the tango music with a dance beat and great visuals
Co-President, Modiba Productions
Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 -- had never seen them live before – hadn’t truly lived ’til I did! :)
Mamani Keita -- big fan but had never seen her live -- Mamani exuded grace on stage and the group delivered a beautiful trans-national sound.
Telmary -- Cuban hip hop that reminded me of being at a Soulive show --attention hiphopers: keep the funk alive!
