Looking today at the Camp Bestival line up for the same weekend: I would love to see Kool & the Gang (last year's Glasto highlight for me) and Hot Chip making the trip from Dorset.
I see lots of mentions for Bjork. I'm a big fan, but I found last years Biophilia show a bit heavy-going.
There's a time and a place for self indulgent noodling, and for me its not the main stage at Womad, and certainly not on a Saturday night (found Baaba Maal a bit low key last year). Any one else up for a party?
In no particular order The Afro Celt Sound System and Geoffrey Oryema.oh and Rachid Taha.
But most of all I want it to be a success and if that means ' a name' for Saturday night then fine. In times of dreadful Dire Straits and the plug being pulled on festivals as big as the Big Chill you have to get people in the arena- or there wont be one.
Did I mention Dire Straits? Oh go on then just for 1 night in July reform, I could see almost a dozen people at the front dancing to Sultans of Swing.
Spiro, Spiro, Spiro!
I know it's been said before, but OMG . . . Womad fairies . . . please, please, please hear my prayer . . . Burning Spear. x
Yes some original roots reggae: such as -
What about going back to the beginning of WOMAD and have Echo and the Bunnymen back?
I would love Israel Vibration, or Wailing Souls. What about Steel Pulse? A Dub Poet would be a cool addition too. Mutabaruka maybe?
Shooglenifty AND Ensemble Kaboul! Absolutely kicked arse in Glasgow a few years ago. Deserves a rerun. TOTALLY what WOMAD is all about.
Cal and I were just thinking the same Ela - Echo and the Bunnymen
Would Peter Gabriel being stating the obvious?
