Call for Showcase, Conference and Film Proposals
If you would like to submit a Showcase, Conference or Film proposal for WOMEX '10 Copenhagen, make haste. Only few more days until the final deadline for all programme proposals.
After the huge success in 2009 the Nordic Club stage is back in 2010 at Womex in Copenhagen. Just as last year the stage will feature artists from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland - running all three Showcase nights. The Norwegian artists this year are Elisabeth Vatn and her Piper on the Roof Ensemble and Slagr.
Charismatic bag-piper Elisabeth Vatn brought with her the applauded Piper on the Roof ensemble for a much-anticipated showcase at Womex in Copenhagen last week. Here you can read an interview with the profiled musician by Tomas Lauvland Pettersen at MIC.

Music Export Norway and the Norwegian delegates took part in a Nordic collaboration at Womex 2010.
From 2009 – 2011 Womex will be held in Copenhagen adding an extra Nordic flavor to the event.
Womex, the World Music Expo, has expanded to become a diverse, multicultural, increasingly popular expression of interest in world culture.
Hallgrim Hansegard, Ragnhild Furebotten and Annbjørg Lien are amongst the very best musicians on the current traditional Norwegian music scene and will perform during the opening concert at Womex 2009.
From 2009 – 2011 the World Music exhibition will be held in Copenhagen adding an extra Nordic flavor to the event. A Nordic club will be included to the program putting on show two bands from each of the Nordic countries. Unni Løvlid and Johan Sara jr will represent Norway.
