Global Notes: WOMEX 2018

Catalina Maria Johnson, host of Vocalo’s Beat Latino, just got back from the 2018 World Music Expo (WOMEX) held in Las Palmas on the Canary Islands. The massive festival bills itself as the “biggest conference of the global music scene, featuring a trade fair, talks, films and a showcase festival.” For today’s Global Notes, Johnson features hot music from Algeria, and Canada, and Colombia.
