From Kinshasa to Helsinki: The WOMEXIMIZER is a Gateway to Global Sound

WOMEX, the annual gathering of the planet's global music pros, is about to happen in Copenhagen, Denmark. The WOMEXIMIZER compilation album gives the world a view into artists likely to tour worldwide in coming months and years. From the funk and rumba grooves of Kinshasa’s famous "disabled band" Staff Benda Bilili to the Chinagress revolution of Hanggai, the album has something for everyone; new sounds, old sounds, and everything in between. Border-crossers like Ahilea (Macedonia/Austria), Watcha Clan (France/Algeria), and Kayhan Kalhor & Brooklyn Rider (Iran/USA) sit alongside roots musicians like Parno Graszt (Hungary), Yves Lambert et le Bébert Orchestra (Canada), and Orchestra Popolare Italiana (Italy). No album like this would be complete without an Icelandic-Belgium collaboration (Mógil) or Gnawa desert rocker (Hasna el Becharia). Listen in to hear what music will emerge worldwide from WOMEX, the gathering of tribes and global vibes.

Music fans can stream full WOMEXIMIZER album on Womex.com
