Here are some highlights from our recent rock paper scissors-hosted facebook chat about what to see, do, hear, and eat at the upcoming WOMEX and in its beautiful host city, Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
WOMEX is the world's top meeting place for music professions in the "world music" community, and includes music showcases, film showings, engaging sessions on professional topics, networking opportunities, and one-on-one mentoring. More on registering here. The chat allowed veteran conference-goers and first-time attendees to ask questions about the locale and WOMEX by posting questions and comments on our facebook page. With help from some knowledgeable locals, good answers abounded.
