WOMADelaide becomes a 4 day festival, making the most of the new Monday public holiday.
Highlights: A magical performance by Ravi & Anoushka Shankar under the stars, GrriLLa Step almost blowing the speakers, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Kathakali Dance Ensemble and Transe Express Mobile Homme ringing out suspended from high above the crowds through a downpour of rain. Dean & Britta’s homage to Andy Warhol 13 Most Beautiful, and the YAMATO Drummers of Japan.
“I really enjoyed performing with my father at WOMADdelaide; it was such a memorable show. It was a unique and warm festival experience and I had a great time watching all the other artists too – overall, I loved it!” - Anoushka Shankar, India
"To play at the festival years later was a dream come true for me. It felt like the realisation of a seed that was planted when I first attended. I love WOMADelaide, it will forever hold a very, very special place in my heart." - Mama Kin, Australia
