The Transglobal World Music Chart (TWMC) a global platform and music chart has been created and is organised by Araceli Tzigane and Juan Antonio Vázquez (Mundofonías) in cooperation with Ángel Romero (World Music Central.org). They will not only present the TWMC (running since the middle of 2015) at the Crossroads panel discussion, but they will also advise young bands on how to work with the media.
Araceli and Juan have contacted dozens of music publicists, experts and radio DJs from all over the world – professionals specialising in
world, folk or traditional music as well as global fusions growing from these roots to find help in discovering interesting and unknown music. This included small independent labels and albums published by artists themselves. The TWMC’s objective is to promote original music, to assist it on its way to public awareness and to make it easier for musicians to win recognition even in countries on the other side of the globe. One of those promoting Czech music through this new channel is Jiří Moravčík, a dramaturge of Colours of Ostrava, a music publicist and the author of the world-music.cz website.
