Description: Czech Music Crossroads is an international music conference devoted to Central and Eastern European music. The conference takes place two days before the Colours of Ostrava music festival, and includes a showcase festival. The main focus of the conference is on music exports, plus debates on current musical and social issues. Musicians from Central and Eastern European countries perform to experts and guests from all around the world, presenting a range of genres and crossovers from world music and folk to jazz and new acoustic music.
