European Folk Day – September the 23rd

European Folk Day: 23rd September 2024

We are happy and thankful to share the insights from Alex Walter, WOMEX Director, and Ben Mandelson, WOMEX Founding Director, about the European Folk Day:

‘The European Folk Day is a great collective initiative blending celebration and advocacy. It raises awareness and highlights the diversity of folk musics. So many strands that ring out and sing out the joys and power of music-making and the values of traditional arts culture: different sounds and shapes and emotional resonance, but there for all to share and inspire.’ 🙏🏽
