Womex is the biggest world music exposition in the world, a platform for meeting the most important musicians and managers from the international folk music enviroment. For a young group like ours, it is the best existing option to promote worldwide. This year Womex will take place in Katowice (PL), which makes logistics very easy for us – three out of five members of the group live in this city 🙂
At Womex, we would like to present our CD Ambigram (PAN Records, 2014, available on Spotify), as well as the new project Distant Shore (see the video) which focuses on forgotten music from North East Poland. Our graphic designer Dominika Szczech would prepare a video for one of the new tunes, as well as pictures and other visual promo materials.
Participating at Womex means purchasing a stand at the exposition and having a few people to represent it – and this is why we need you financial support. It costs 860 euros to buy a Womex stand and 275 euros to pay for a membership for one person. We would like to have there only three of us (Marianna, Paweł and Maciej, who speak more than one foreign languge), so the total amount we are asking for is 1685 euros. This is an early rate, which has to be paid to Womex before June 23rd. We will also need some extra (probably about 200 euros) to provide transportation of Marianna and Maciej from The Netherlands.

What if we collect more money then planned? We will use it to print our business cards, flyers and other visual materials for Womex.
In return, we prepared some special gifts for you, including our CD, a private instrumental lesson with one of us or even – a private concert in your house. Additionally, as a contributor you will get our deepest, life-long gratitude!
