We had a dream … to meet again in a festive mood and through interesting discussions during our annual sector meeting in the Palace, combined with a few showcase concerts in the cosy AB Club. But reality got the better of us and the actual circumstances forced us to cancel the event.
However, we don’t stop there and organise an online meeting on 9 November at 2 p.m. on a much-discussed topic (no not corona): “World Music”… what’s in a name?
Interesting speakers will share their views on what the term ‘world music’ means to them: what questions does it raise and what are the alternatives? During short pitches, listeners will get a detailed analysis of the concept “world music” from different perspectives (historical, international, economic, artistic, decolonisation, …). This session is a first step towards a further deepening of this subject in 2021.
