Womex 2015 may not have chosen the easiest city in Europe to be holding their annual jamboree but there may be some surprise musicians passing through on their way north.
Good news is that they have a link for the official artists performing so we can all enjoy at www.womex.com/virtual/piranha_arts_1/va ... ximizer_15

Great edition of WOMEX in Budapest. The sun shone, and a lot of good showcases. The downside was some festivals boycotted due to the treatment of refugees. Wrong target we thought.

Highlights for me

2 trios each having good conversations amongst themselves

Javier Paxariño trio (Spain), incidentally a founding member of Radio Tarifa.

and

The Nordanains (Netherlands)

Pat Thomas (Ghana) was absolutely brilliant
