Mundial Montreal, one of the new stellar events in the world music circuit returns November 13-16 in Montreal, Canada. Presented in cooperation with Galaxie, Mundial Montreal, is a music conference and festival that presents the best of world music from Canada.
The event celebrates Canada’s rich cultural diversity through a variety of showcases and venues. Participants include some of the most sought-after programmers who participate in networking events, panels and meetings.
This year Mundial Montreal has increased its programming up to 33 artists, who will perform in 10 different venues, and over 100 delegates from both Canada and beyond.
At Mundial Montreal, presenters, agents, journalist and other professionals will be introduced to Canadian-made Balkan beat, salsa, samba, rara, reggae, world blues, flamenco-inspired sounds, laptop hip hop, Quebecois Cajun Punk, Arabic and Afro-dub.
In addition, this year Mundial Montreal will put a spotlight on “World Music 2.0”, taking a pioneering look at how the world music “genre” fits into the digital music world and how hybridizations of different cultures and aesthetics are evolving from the traditional.
This year’s Mundial performers include Heavy Soundz (Syli d’Or de la Musique du Monde winner), Harry Manx, Marco Calliari, Nomadic Massive, Rômmel Ribeiro, Socalled, and many more.
