Babel Med Music 2008: Marseille listens to the sounds of the world!


From March 27th to 29th, Babel Med Music makes Marseille, France, the capital of the world sound. As a forum of the world music industry with a selection of concerts open to the general public, Babel Med Music established itself as a unique world music event since 2005.

For three days, the essential players in world music (artists, festival directors, broadcasters, concert organizers, recording companies, agents, managers, Press, etc.) will discuss, discover and book artists, debate in encounters and conferences on issues concerning the production, dissemination and outreach of artistic works in these days of globalisation.

During the day, the market space is the theatre of this major rendez-vous for the 1,500 music industry professionals present and the 130 organisations represented on stands, together with the conference room, the screening room and the Agora.

In the evenings, the Dock des Suds provides its majestic showcase of the five continents, with 30 concerts (10 every evening) open to music industry professionals and to the general public. The 2008 programme of concerts, thoroughly devised by an international panel, presents a high-standard, extensive selection of artists: newly-discovered talents who are set to become the major artists of the future, on international stages and airwaves. Both the informed and the curious-minded will have the first chance to hear this choice selection.

This all-round musical panorama covers the China Sea and the Caribbean, the Sinai desert and the cities of the Mediterranean, the dance-floors of Amsterdam and Belgrade Cathedral, Bamako coach station and the shores of Thessalonica.
