Lets have a little fun making up our own line- up
Crossover collaborations any ideas?
Who could we team up with say
David Gray ?
Sinead Oconnor ?
Seasick Steve ?
I'm surprised Gotye isn't in the line- up this year, he's really popular amongst the younger crowd....
Any ideas for acts ?
My ultimate musical tag team would be Manu Chao with the late Joe Strummer and the recently disbanded King Blues.
Manu Chao played in Miami, and I wasn't able to make the show. I spoke with some friends that went, and they raved about the show! They said I missed something really fantastic. I would love to see them at WOMAD.
Saw him at Glasto and at the Hop Farm fantastic both times
Wish list grouping
Peter Gabriel with Imogen Heap and Kate Bush
Anda union and hayseed dixie and let them play drinking songs all night!!!!!
I would like to see a HUGE group of the majority of the artists that have played the festival come together in a big ol group (we are the world styley) for a few tracks last thing on the Sunday night . . . for a grand finale before the fireworks go off!!! xxx
Fireworks were the highlight of Womud. Would be great if they do that again.
your wish is granted
A large firework display is planned for the Sunday night
A few years back ( I think it may have been the year of Womud) there was a 'jam session' on the sunday night where various artists got together and collaborated and I thought it was fantastic . If I remember correctly Johnny Kalsi and Billy Cobham were doing a kind of drumming duel at one stage ...it was Johnny and his Dhol Drum and Billy and his drum kit . It was one of those times that I've never forgotten . I often wonder why they don't do that more at Womad . For me it was a special moment , artists from different cultures playing together .. wonderful
just thought of a very obvious one and one that would be possible and in my opinion would be totally awesome. Manu Chao (who everyone loves) is heavily influenced by Bob Marley and Wilko Johnson), Bob Marley mentions in Punky Reggae that "Dr Feelgood will be there too" could be referring of course to heroin but I like to think the band,which brings in Wilko. Then Manu Chao ran away from home at 14 or 15 to England to follow Dr Feelgood but in particular Wilko Johnson and his guitar playing style. and from Manu Choa's machine gun style guitar of playing along with leaping in air is still there.
So what about The Marley's with, Manu Choa and Wilko Johnson .....Gord Blimey Gov'ner pretty bloody brilliant !!!
