As with every year, the WOMEX Awards celebrates and honours exceptional achievements in global music on the international level; musical excellence, social importance, commercial success, political impact, lifetime achievement – any or all of these might make one a worthy recipient. Since 1999, the impressive list of Award recipients continues to grow, and with the 2021 edition, we are proud to add two more extraordinary recipients for the Artist and the Professional Excellence Award.
WOMEX Award ceremony is our final day event celebrating our global community's musical diversity, cultural richness, and the collective spirit of creativity. Moderated by Jo Frost (UK) and André Marmot (UK), the WOMEX Awards 2021 honour the following artist, organisation and labels:
WOMEX Artist Award 2021: Aynur
WOMEX Professional Excellence Award 2021: Global Music Match
WOMEX Top 20 Labels 2021
