Explored a wide range of topics, through selected panel-discussions with the participation of leading professionals, popular artists and recognized representatives of international networks (eg HEMI, JUMP, Keychange, Music Tech Europe Academy) and organizations (eg Music Innovation Hub, Music Finland, Stegi Onassis Foundation, Women On Top and many more). Among them, the internationally renowned saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings talks about the explosion of the jazz scene in Britain, Lambros Fisfis and Aris Dimokidis talk about podcasts, the Clubhouse and the audio content revolution, Panos Mouzourakis and Ian Soun music realities and talent shows, Andreas Metaxas (Stay Independent) and William Darladanis (Athens Bros) analyze the hip hop phenomenon in Greece.
And because we can not talk about music without music, AMW Showcase program combines new and timeless trends focusing on the emergence and promotion of Greek musicians while introducing foreign artists to the domestic market for the first time. Discover from polyphonic bands, world beat, and traditional sounds of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans, to psychedelic techno, warm electronic soundscapes and talharpas.
The program includes 19 artists from 10 different countries, while in terms of Greek participations we will go through the hip hop rhymes of Saske, the Industrial-punk of the newly formed Orgazma, the world-trad sound of Dysatolia and BAiLDSA in ambient Johnny Labelle’s pop and OCEANDVST pop-punk and from WERA’s dreamy classical / folk / jazz sounds to Kit Kido dystopian beats.
