With Womadelaide 2018 less than 8 weeks away ( 9th-12th March 2018 ) its time to put the spotlight on the event and some of the many International and Local artists that will be gracing the Stage.

If you are a regular Womadelaide patron, you are probably aware that Tinariwen have previously played at Womadelaide twice previously with the most recent performance here in 2012. Due to conflict in Mali, 2 of the band members were unable to make the trip. Well its now 6 years later and they are heading back to Adelaide. When I first saw them I was blown away by the driving hypnotic beats with Guitars and vocals cutting through the air whilst all the time fully dressed in the attire they wear in the Deserts of Mali. They are often described as playing Desert Blues and are sure to be one of the many highlights at this years festival.
