Oxfam is partnering with the Australasian World Music Expo again this year for 4 days of the finest roots music from around the world.

From Thursday 17 to Sunday 20 November, AWME has a series of concerts, films, industry forums and conference sessions at venues in Melbourne’s CBD.

This year’s artists include Blue King Brown (Australia), the Congos (Jamaica), Mulatu Astatke (Ethiopia) and the Dynamites featuring Charles Walker (USA).

Last year, Oxfam had an awesome time at AWME talking to music professionals from around the world, spreading the word about our work and attending a few amazing gigs.

This year, will be talking about our GROW campaign and helping raise money in support of solutions to tackle the current food crisis.
