I missed Womadelaide last year, so I was delighted to get back there this year for three days.
Happy Boxwars graduates.
Azadoota, an Assyrian Iraqui band from Sydney.
A flurry of dancers appeared during Azadoota's set.
Sam Lee & Friends. I think this group might turn out to be new favourite. Their was the only CD I brought home (though there are a few more I may track down) and it is lovely. Really delightful. A collection of English folk songs, played with some non-traditional instruments, eg Shruti Box, an Indian instrument, bellows-based, which makes a droning noise (yes! the good kind).
Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen, from New Orleans. A fantastic show. Even though one of the gentlemen (the guitarist) was missing due to illness, with just bass, drums and piano the sound was large and warm.
