I remember when the "Us"-record came out in 1992, they were celebrating the "10 Years of WOMAD" - there was also an article about this in the "Box-Magazine" (PG-fan-paper) at that time.
See how time flies. . . .

Just heard from my sister who is going to WOMAD in Adelaide. Lucky her to see Dub Colossus but I don't envy her the temperature. Apparently it will be about 40 degrees-phew.

Hope we get some nice weather this year.
Can't wait to see who's on.
Lucky Sis BTW

Yes, some acts mentioned on the previous pages including the Drummers of Burundi and - the Afro Celt Sound System ! will perform at WOMAD 2010.

Toumast, Imelda May, The Drummers of Barundi, Rolf Harris and his band, Afro Celts . . . . . . where else would you find such a diverse line up?
Cant wait :-] :-] :-]

I am still holding out for Speed Caravan but maybe that's just greedy. ANyhow I agree Sesmo-the lineup already looks fantastic.
All we need now are some decent WCs! Oh and some sun :-]

I see even more added to the line-up. Not going to have time to eat or sleep!
John Metcalfe and Simon Hale will be playing improvised music with the Bays & Heritage Orchestra. Like the sound of that.

you might remember my lavish praise for Baka Beyond. I went on to the WOMAD Forum and begged them to invite them to WOMAD. I'll have to try again later for 2011 - probably too late for this year.

for me personally "Across the River" was always the "theme"-song for WOMAD in 1982, while "Shaking the Tree" was the "anthem" for the new REAL WORLD-label in 1989.
The connection and fusion of WOMAD and REAL WORLD was musically to be heard and seen in 1993/1994 with the "Secret World"-tour-concept for that tour, when the song "Across the River" was always followed by "Shaking the Tree" on the setlist.

I discovered today that there is a Celtic group called The Elders:
Don't know much about them. Have they ever done WOMAD? Would WOMAD veteran festival goers welcome a group like this?

Wow Raven, Ive just had a look at a couple of live tracks from The Elders.
I cant really call myself a "veteran" of WOMAD, but in my humble Lunatic opinion they would go down a storm.
Rain or shine, mud or dust, how could you not get up and swing your appendages to that??!
