Sines Fmm celebrates 20 years of musical adventures

We are in the middle of the summer and really excited to introduce you to one of the events of the year:            Sines FMM (Festival Músicas do Mundo) !

Many times trying to make it there but unfortunately other compromises kept us away from it… But this year, in the already 20th edition, we from World is Music will be in full presence to experience the joy of different musical traditions from all the world and to expand our musical horizons!

This festival, organised by the city council of Sines, is the biggest event of world music in Portugal and folkloric expressions of different societies. A true gem when it comes to speak about summer celebrations: 59 concerts from every continent and almost 2/3 of its program is for free, happening  in different streets of Porto Covo the first weekend and in Sines the next week.

Lisbon goes Jameson Urban Routes

Lisbon, certainly one of Southern Europe’s cultural centers, is in constant movement. This can be seen, for instance, by one of the festivals that the city hosts this week in the famous MusicBox. We are speaking about Jameson Urban Routes, an urban music festival established 7 years ago that seeks to bring many upcoming talents and already known ones on stage, from an alternative background and without limitations in their style of music.

Discovery of the summer: FAT FAT FAT Festival + W.I.M. warm-up Mixtape

Already in its second edition, the FAT FAT FAT Festival organised by the Italian electronic music collective Harmonized seems like it will have a bright future to come. Taking place between August 4 – 6 in the romantic region around the small historic towns of Corridonia and Morrovalle, some 20kms away from the Eastern Adriatic Coast in Italy, the setting is one of its charms – but not only.

We from World is Music have prepared a cozy and sweet warm up mix for the Fat Fat Fat. Expect a selection of tracks from many of the artists who are going this year. You will find some smooth jazz, disco, house and even techno in this mixtape for one of the best events of this year…
