Discover the best in new world music at Mundial Montréal, pairing Montréal's musical and cultural diversity with the world's. Known as North America's World Music Summit, the annual music industry gathering features a conference, networking events and one-of-a-kind concerts.
Mundial Montréal shines the spotlight on over 100 talented musicians from every corner of the world, from Canada to Spain to Senegal to Korea. The summit’s industry events also draw attention to the global socio-cultural climate, bringing together 300 professional delegates from more than 20 countries to develop their ideas around the future of world music.
The summit honours cultural heritage worldwide, including the interweaving of traditional and contemporary music, as well as a program focused on Indigenous music – the annual Indigenous Sounds Series features panel discussions and performances by eclectic Indigenous artists.
Daytime keynote sessions, panel discussions and meetings weave into networking dinners. Meanwhile, afternoon music showcases and evening concerts that run late into the night are all open to the public.
This year's Mundial Montréal opening night brings a musical mosaic to life with South Korean’s NST & The Soul Sauce Meets Kim Yulhee, Swedish-Senegalese indie duo Sousou & Maher Cissoko, Canadian group BELLFLOWER and the Afro-Colombian Grupo Rebolu.
Daily afternoon showcases feature Indigenous artists Murray Porter, Mimi O'Bonsawin and Kym Gouchie, plus Canadian Syrian artist Nazih Borish, Finland’s VILDÁ, Celeigh Cardinal and more. At evening concerts hear an Indian twist on world beat by Kiran Ahluwalia, folk by Swedish-Norwegian group Sver, Vishtèn's Celtic sounds, the Flamenco fusion of La Léa and more. Singer-songwriter Mamselle Ruiz, Malian-Canadian singer Djely Tapa and multilingual Montréal hip hop legends Nomadic Massive make Saturday a Mundial Montréal closing night to remember.
