The NWEAMO Festival will be traveling to Tokyo for the first time in November. We are looking for participants in our two day festival.
It will take place in the heart of the famous Shibuya district this November.

Following that, participants will be invited to perform at NWEAMO in San Diego in March 2017.

We want to invite artists from around the world who share our mission of world unity through creative expression.
We are looking for artists who would love to present mini sets of 1 to 10 minutes, and who are excited about sharing the stage with as many different genres as possible in a 1.5 hour concert.
The music can be purely electronic or electronics in addition to acoustic instruments, using invented, traditional or electronic instruments. It can involve projected images, choreography, dance.

We want to invite new entries as well as artists from our past American, Mexican and European endeavors to collide and merge with the vast deep currents of Asia. We are thrilled at the potential for new cross pollination in our ongoing search for hybrid global art statements. What can be born from the implosion and transfusion of opposite polarities?

Founded in 1998, NWEAMO seeks to present the broadest possible spectrum of different genres and styles with the goal of bridging gaps, dissolving boundaries and building a world-wide community of people who are passionate about music as a universal language, and from that to creating a World without Borders – where differences are honored and celebrated.
