The World Of Music And Dance comes to Adelaide every March. A four day festival held in the beautiful Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
A showcase of music from around the world.
We visited a couple of days of the festival basking in the beautiful warm and letting the music from.the world stimulate body and soul.
Youssoa N’Dour from Senagal the headline act on Monday night.
Sampa the Great and her all Zambian band
There were songs from Persia
Songs of the Pacific as interpreted in the Torres Straight Islands
Sexy soul from the UK
Wild Romanian gypsy violin
Argentinian Tango. And much much more!
Not far north of Adelaide is the Barossa Valley. Settled by German migrants in the late 1800s it’s a centre of winemaking and one of Australia’s most famous wine regions.
A nice day trip from Adelaide.
There is also some lovely bushland for a nature walk.
The closing act at WOMAD was a an aerial dance of angels casting feathers on the crowd. Here is a sample.

Fantastic shots of Womad, Mic! Brought back some terrific memories. Although our Adelaide friends were complaining about the feathers for a while afterwards!
Yes wasn’t WOMAD just fantastic. It was great that you and Swanny were there as well.
