If I wait any longer in the hope of putting together a comprehensive and coherent Womadelaide 2011 post, I'll never do it. So here is a start. Two pictures from the All Star Gala which is always on the last evening. The first one shows two of the members of 17 Hippies from Berlin.
Unfortunately, it's not the 'All Star Jam' as I habitually think of it - which suggests to me a brilliant, continuous, improvisational set weaving all the different musicians in and out. I want to say that the first year I went it WAS like that - but I may be embellishing. In fact it does involve musicians from two or three different groups performing together, but then generally just bring the singers out one at a time to do one of their usual songs.
The picture below features Nigerian singer Asa.
