Katowice (Poland) will enjoy a major Canadian invasion October 25-29 this year! Building on the largest Canadian delegation ever in 2016, Mundial Montreal is back, coordinating closely with Canadian partners and industry stakeholders at WOMEX, the world’s leading industry gathering, which this year heads the furthest east it’s ever been! With 2 Canadian artists performing, a panel highlighting developments in Indigenous music, a World Routes Network meeting, and several networking receptions, this year will continue to cement Canada’s status as a major international player in world music and cultural diversity.
Mundial Montreal, North America’s World Music Summit, continues its role as a connector within the strong Canadian delegation. Mundial is pulling resources together for the community and strengthening the Canadian position in the global market, making the most of available opportunities. The home base for all Canadian delegates will be the venerable Canada Stand, with a collective presence including Mundial Montreal and Folquébec under the banner of “World Music de Chez Nous,” plus booths from CIMA, ANIM and CINARS.
