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.

Meeting one of the most iconic and eclectic Ethiopian musicians: Hailu Mergia

A few months ago we had the pleasure to meet Hailu Mergia in Berlin during his 2016 tour through Europe. Now that he is back on this latitude to bring us his musical delight, we rescued from our archives this beautiful and intimate chat we had with him in his hotel lobby in East-Berlin. Get to know this Ethiopian music legend…
