This will be the second time WOMEX, the largest event in world music has come to Budapest - or rather, Budapest will go to the world. Owing to the pandemic, the WOMEX events will be streamed this year; the live concerts in Hungary will be open to audiences.
This year's WOMEX Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Mónika Lakatos, was born into a Vlach Gypsy family in Budapest. She sings in various formations, including Romengo, which plays a world music that is based on the Gypsy tradition, and... Cigány Hangok, several of whose members come from her own family. Romanimo, her solo album, is a collection of slow, moving songs - and was a Top 5 record on the World Music Charts Europe.
This event of the CAFe Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival is jointly presented by Müpa Budapest and Hangvető.
Presented by: Müpa Budapest, Hangvető
