July is almost gone, and WOMEX is approaching, as well as many other important Fall appointments in Europe for the world/folk music sector: Fira MediterraniaEnglish Folk Expo ShowcaseEuropean Folk Network ConferenceFolkelarm, etc.
We are thrilled that Northern Resonance, the new Scandinavian string trio, have been selected for a showcase in Porto in the end of October within the framework of WOMEX.
We are also excited about Frigg‘s concert at Alkantara World Music Festival here in Sicily tomorrow night on the Etna Volcano, and WOR’s concert in Trento in August in the framework of World Vibes.
And we were pleased to hear that Luca Bassanese & La Piccola Orchestra Popolare made a blast in Austria at Treibhaus.
For any further information about artists concert availability in 2022, do not hesitate to talk with us.
Have a good beginning of August. Our next issue will be out after the 15th.

WOR, Flemish NeoFolk at WORLD VIBES 2021

WÖR are a young, up and coming neofolk quintet bringing new energy to 18th century tunes from the Flanders region of Belgium.
The band shines an inventive spotlight on tunes that have received very little modern exposure. While there are clear influences from Celtic, jazz, and pop music, the band has created its own brew. In the mix are saxophones, violin, bagpipes, accordion and guitar.​
With their first album Back to the 1780’s (Appel Rekords, 2015), WÖR have demonstrated that it is possible to come up with some very imaginative treatments of traditional music and bring new life to beautiful melodies, which have spent years in obscurity. Their second album ‘Sssht’ (Appel Rekords, 2017), produced by Finnish violin legend Esko Järvelä, is another example of the band’s modern approach and one to catch the ear. ‘About Towers’ (2020) is a very cohesive and mature album, and a great tribute to carillon bell players of a time.  
On stage, WÖR play intense live shows and were nominated Best Live Band of the Year at the 2021 Flanders Folk Awards. Their live performances best suit theaters but are also a good fit for festival stages.   
All members are astonishing musicians, coaxing fantastic sounds out of their chosen instruments. 
​Get ready to be surprised!
Enjoy life with good friends and great music!
Take care!
