WOMEX is the annual worldwide world music industry expo, something like a SXSW or CMJ for world music moguls, musicians, pundits and enthusiasts. If you want to learn about new artists, new trends, new happenings in the worlds of world music, WOMEX is the place to be.
This October WOMEX was held in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki. Despite the difficult times in Greece, Thessaloniki was a marvelous host city. Rob was there along with musician George Sempepos of groundbreaking Greek-American electro-roots band Annabouboula (and more recently rembetic surf-rock band the Byzantones), and esteeemed journalist Anastasia Tsioulcas of NPR Music. George and Anastasia join Rob this week to talk about the experience and share music by artists and bands they were turned on to at WOMEX and in their travels.
