About the Book
Photo book from the World Music Expo, covering the three years in Copenhagen 2009-2011. Musicians, producers, bookers, promoters and media meet every year to make music from every corner of the world more widely available. The annual WOMEX event is a professional trade fair and meeting place for the industry, but it also became a concentrated celebration of music and culture with approximately 60 showcase concerts each of the three years.
This music is opening the world! The book invites you to visit the world of music in more than 200 images by Danish photographer Jacob Crawfurd.
Note on the paper: the softcover book is printed on standard paper and the hardcover versions are printed on premium paper.
