The 7 piece band (which includes a banjitar, clarinet and washboard amongst its ol’ time orchestra) shared 1920s style swinging soul and blues tunes, making the audience itch to throw aside their chairs and start to Charleston – in fact, many did just that later in the night. LUCY AHERN reviews.
Not even the sweltering hot sun could have kept everyone away from the third day of WOMAD, with people filing in and finding their places amongst the ample shade of Botanic Park. A yoga workshop, held at the Moreton Bay Stage, was the perfect way to start the day. JESSICA RENAGLIA reports.
Circolombia was simply electrifying to watch, the whole crowd waiting for the next gravity defying stunt; no doubt more than a few were inspired to run away and join the circus. Plus, they showcased some of the best abdominal muscles WOMAD may have ever seen. LUCY AHERN reports.
If you’ve never been before, you may not realise just how big WOMADelaide really is. I found myself winding through the hubbub of people and the myriad of stalls; across the road and past all the bar tents, looking for the biggest of stages dedicated to the biggest of acts: The Cat Empire.

Don your fisherman pants, ditch the shoes and leave your fear of dancing in public at the door – WOMAD is again upon us! The sprawling parks welcome us back for a huge 21st celebration – that’s right, WOMADelaide is all grown up, having shared with us the finest world music and international flavours for over two decades.
