I missed Womadelaide last year, so I was delighted to get back there this year for three days.

115 Dancers with Azadoota


127 Dancers with Azadoota

174 Sam Lee & Friends
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).

177 Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen
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.

Hi Olivia it's Elle from Azadoota. Stumbled across your pics and would like to use them on our website and facebook page. Is that ok with you?
