Smoke Notes

The WOMAD New Zealand 2008 compilation is a fantastic representation of the big name acts playing the festival in Taranaki this year.
The CD features 16 tracks from some of the fantastic international performers set to take to the stages at WOMAD New Zealand 2008 at New Plymouth’s Brooklands Park and TSB Bowl from March 14-16.
This is truly a world music journey, beginning in Brazil with a track from the kings of samba rock Clube do Balanco, followed by the exotic West-African tones of Toumani Diabate’s Symmetric Orchestra.
Next up is festival headliner and gospel/soul legend Mavis Staples, Israeli countertenor David D’Or and soul/funk revivalists Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.
New Zealand’s own Kora & SJD wave the flag on the local front before we get a taste of the gypsy/folk inspired music of indie hipster and rising star Beirut.
The ‘queen of morna’ Cesaria Evora nicknamed the ‘barefoot diva’ showcases the traditional sounds of Africa & South America before Frenchman Titi Robin presents his original interpretation of gypsy music.
The festival's incredible world tour continues – off to Russia for Terem Quartet then Romania with Taraf de Haidouks before a stopover in Peru to hear the folkloric Afro- Peruvian songs of Susana Baca.
The Journey continues to Japan for percussionist Joji Hirota before finishing in India with the mesmerizing flute playing of Dr Natesan Ramani.
