WOMAD returns

Osibisa gave a rousing performance at this WOMAD this year – after the festival was unable to go ahead last time, we are so pleased to see it back in full force – the UK festival scene would just not be the same without it! From The Guardian…

“After two Covid-induced years away, Womad returns to mark its 40th anniversary celebrations – and it’s earned itself a little nostalgia. Festival co-founder Peter Gabriel is here, of course, introducing Ghanaian-British rock band Osibisa, praising their role in popularising African music here back in the 70s, and harking back to the first Womad in 1982, when their singer and dancer Angie Anderson was also with the dance company Ekome, who backed Gabriel on his performance of Biko.”
