WOMEX, the networking platform and conference for music industry people from across the world, is taking place this week. This international professional exposition is celebrating its 22nd edition in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, from October 19 to 23. Sonidos Latinos (SoL) is representing Latin American sounds this time around, launching officially at the trade fair.
To explore all the Latin American and Spanish artists who are playing at WOMEX 2016, we compiled this Before You Go playlist. Vibe to the sounds of SoL-affiliated artists like ZZK Records’ El Remolón and Peruvian octet Bareto, as well as Portuguese rockuduro pioneers Throes + The Shine, Boricua chanteuse iLe, and many more. Party and business are about to take over Galicia.
