Womadelaide 2019 is not far away now so heres a short preview of some of the artists I have had the pleasure to see and capture previously. John Butler Trio last performed at Womadelaide in 2008 and the show was quite mesmerising. It is the first time I had seen JBT

John Butler Trio

 

TKay Maidza is an Australian Hip Hop artist who although small in stature has a super powerful voice and stage presence. I caught her early on in her career at Laneway Festival in 2015 and looking forward to seeing her again at Womadelaide 2019.

The Bamboos are also playing this year at Womad with their infectious danceable funk/soul music with Kylie Auldist belting out powerful vocals with Lance Ferguson on lead and a fantastic backing band to round off the sound. See more images of the Bamboos playing at the Gov here

and of course returning after performing at Womad in 2015 is the visual spectacle that is The Colour of time. Expect to end up with some colour on your clothes/face if you watch this amazing performance as Powder “bombs” are set off.

 

This is only a handful of the acts playing at Womadelaide 2019.

Don’t forget that Kids under 12 are free with an accompanying paying Adult.

Whilst Friday night session is the shortest of the 4 days there were some gems to be found. By far the highlight of the night was the performance by Montaigne on the Novatech stage. Wow what a voice and lots of energy. Totally captivating and someone I’ll be aiming to see again sometime soon ( She is playing also at Groove in the Moo in April 2017). Also managed to fit in the Hot 8 Brass band from New Orleans, Xylouris White, Oumou Sangare and part of the Attractor Dancenorth and Lucy Guerin show which had quite loud live “grunting/screaming” which at times seemed excessive but offset by some great dancing.
