Who will be your discovery at WOMAD 2011?
“With hundreds of artists from everywhere in the world, everyone’s WOMAD will be different,””
The Evening Standard, 2010.
A DJ with his own barbershop quartet and 6 piece band from Ireland to a rebellious band of Chinese throat singers, WOMAD brings artists from all over the world to a location known for its rolling hills, green trees and rural beauty. Discovery is the key, and musical revelations causing spine tingling sensations are rife.
And its not just a spectators party, get involved.
Taste The World Food and conversation – artists prepare & cook their favourite dishes with a side order of spontaneous music. Savour the experience.
Adult workshops Step into the world of the artist – opportunities for cultural exchange, active participation, collaboration and musical exploration.
And for the littlest Artists from far and wide share ideas, skills and enthusiasm over a weekend of making and creating large and small scale artworks, all displayed on the final celebratory procession.
