WOMAD NZ 2010 artists were welcomed to Aotearoa / New Zealand (and Taranaki of course) at a special powhiri on at Owae Marae, Waitara.
As media, I too was invited to attend the event which is always an uplifting and colourful event and one which artists talk about for many years.
It’s hard to work out who-is-who, but maybe you can recognise one of your favourites.
NOTE: This blog is one of a series about my recent road trip to WOMAD 2010 (World of Music and Dance) held annually in New Plymouth and other parts of the world: I was travelling in a Backpacker campervan, and on the Interislander ferry over Cook Strait – from Christchurch to WOMAD and back again: enjoy, and leave me a comment or two!
To find the other blogs about the trip, look up the categories to the right of this blog page: ie WOMAD; Interislander Ferry; Music; Campervan, Maori, and bookmark this page, or sign up for an email update for when I add new bogs n the series – they will include the Maori welcome to the artists, links to music by my favourites, cooking with some of the various singers, the Gyuto Monks with their mediations, singing and cooking, and of course, my road trip in the campervan, and lots of photos of people at WOMAD.
