Unlike Eurovision, Rumi World Music invites international artists and not only Europeans. Each participant does not necessarily present a singer but may sing their own song in the local language or in their own language. The artists will compete for awards in 15 categories (Best Female Voice, Best Male Voice, Best Choreography, Best Artist Europe, America, Africa, Australia etc…). Each country awards points to singers and dancers but may not vote for their own candidate.
