25 years of WOMADelaide! Fire artists Cie Carabosse return with a special installation The Exodus of Forgotten Peoples in Frome Park – the first use of that space at the festival. Philip Glass Ensemble perform live to the screening of Godfrey Reggio’s KOYAANISQATSI. Austrian electro-swing stars Parov Stelar, the curious experiential theatre of Cie Ekart, the eclectic sounds from the traditional Hanoi Masters, and the dynamic Inna Modja all performed exclusively in Australia for WOMADelaide 2017.
Other crowd favourites included A.B. Original, Archie Roach, Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra, The Soil and The Specials.
