Preface: "WOMEX (World Music Expo) is to music as the Cannes Festival is to film."
MATUTO RECEIVED THIS VERY EXCITING EMAIL LAST MONTH:
You made it. Congratulations!
On behalf of the WOMEX Jury, we are most happy to invite "Matuto" to perform at WOMEX 11 - the world music expo - to be held in Copenhagen/Denmark, 26-30 October 2011. With over 750 proposals and only mere three dozen slots, yours is an accomplishment to be proud of.
WOMEX gives high visibility for both new and established performing artists alike. Countless artists have launched - or enhanced - major international careers thanks to a WOMEX showcase.With more than 2,440 delegates and 1,360 companies from 94 countries (2010 edition), WOMEX provides the possibilities to exposure to a dedicated, specialist professional gathering, and will provide a focus for artistic and cultural promotion as well as the opportunity for valuable business contacts.
AS THE EMAILS CONTINUES... THE BAD NEWS
As you know, due to budget constraints, WOMEX is unable to offer fees to any showcase artist. What we do offer is one of the best chance in world music to get your music across (almost 1000 bookers in each of the last three years). We provide a slot with full backline and PA. All showcasing artists will receive our customary WOMEX PR treatment, such as announcements in our newsletters and notification to all kinds of media and journalists in general. You'll be posted on our website and published in our indispensable WOMEX guide with a biography, your photo and your contact details.
WELL, IT WASN'T ALL BAD... BUT BACK TO THE GOOD NEWS
By backing this project you will play a major role in Matuto history! You will also receive some great incentives. Let's do this!!!
