Blogging WOMAD: Saturday line-up

Following on from an amazing line up of artists on Friday night, there’s a whole lot of musical goodness to come today here at WOMAD.

Highlights are going to include: Dobet Gnahore, Angelique Kidjo, Dele Sosimi and his Afrobeat Orchestra, Salif Keita and the punky reggae party man himself – Don Letts.

But one of the delights of WOMAD is stumbling on something great which you hadnt previously expected, so I’ll be looking out for other acts, including the Toubab All Stars (white Frenchmen playing pan african music) and Rango, who play a form of ancient Trance which has the reputation of reaching right down to your bones.

Imogen Heap and Cerys Matthews also grace the stages today, as does the rapper Ty, the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain and the Geata Krar Collective. Should be an amazing day!
