By Morten Alfred Høirup |

Quite a few Danish roots, folk and world music bands will be represented at this years world music expo, Womex, in Santiago de Compostela, the capitol of Galicia, Spain.

From 19th to 23rd of October 2016, the Danish roots and folk department of Rosa (Danish Rock Council), and the Danish World Music department (WMD), will participate in Womex, networking, promoting and representing Danish folk, roots and world music, and we you welcome you to visit our stand at the Nordic camp (#1.55 – 1.59).

There you’ll meet musicians and officials from the Danish klezmer band, Klezmofobia, Vokalensemblet Glas (the Danish vocal ensemble Glas), Phønix, and the inter-scandinavian fiddle trio, Fru Skagerrak, amongst many others.

Also Erling Olsen from Go Danish Folk Music (Records), Morten Alfred Høirup from (NetRadio) and Rasmus Wehner from ROSA-Folk will be there to welcome you. Maybe we will meet at the Nordic Brunch on Friday?

We are bringing a bag of usb-sticks containing a lot of info about Danish music, including links for Danish festivals and venues, music examples from 35 Danish bands, and 24 live concerts recorded at Folk Spot Denmark the last few years.

We are very much looking forward to see you in the Nordic camp at Womex in Santiago de Compostela.
