The Festival Músicas do Mundo is one of the biggest world music events in Portugal, which has been taking place in Sines, Alentejo, since 1999. Currently, the festival takes place in the city of Sines and in the village of Porto Covo (about 20 km or 12 miles away).
The Festival has gained increasing spot light.
