Festival of the Day: Womad Festival; 28th July, Reading

FemiWhat? A world music festival? Surely it’s all tree hugging nonesense? Or so a pal of mine said prior to his trip to the banks of the River Thames in Reading. Surprisingly, he enjoyed his weekend that there is talk of another weekend of watching insane blues from Mali, and wonky orchestrations from somewhere remote. This year has the toough workouts of Femi Kuti, up against the wonderful slide of Toumami Diabete (for a full line up follow this link), and not to mention Coldcut, currently in the middle of touring their best LP in years.
