NEW TOURING OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE « TRANSATLANTIC BRIDGE » PRIZE CONNECTING MONTREAL AND MARSEILLE!
MUNDIAL MONTREAL is very proud to collaborate with BABEL MED MUSIC to establish a whole new career springboard for World Music artists : the « Transatlantic Bridge » Prize. The prize was created to increase the circulation of artists between Europe and North America.
Every year, the « Transatlantic Bridge » Prize will be given to 2 talents – one artist discovered at Mundial Montreal in November, as well as one artist spotted in Marseille, during Babel Med Music, in March. The winners will be offered a showcase slot in both festivals’ Official Programming, located on either side of the Atlantic! This is a wonderful opportunity to develop new business relations, open up doors to new markets and grow the career of the selected artists.
The Prize’s first winner: LE VENT DU NORD (Folk Made in Quebec), was spotted at Mundial Montreal, last November. They will be part of the 11th edition’s Official Selection of Babel Med Music, March 26-28, in Marseille.
On Thursday, March 26, at 6:30 pm, during Babel Med Music’s Official Prize Awarding, Derek Andrews, Mundial Montreal’s Artistic Director, will unveil the artist who will have the opportunity to be presented in front of North America’s most influential talent buyers, at Mundial Montreal’s 5th edition, November 17-20.
