We spoke with some of the great performers at WOMAD Charlton Park.
In partnership with Recording Earth, we caught up with a few of the many artists on show.
Following his performances across the weekend, Senegalese singer Cheikh Lô dropped by the Songlines stand to meet and greet his fans and the team.
The family trio Kapela Maliszów are currently taking Poland by storm. Despite the rain, the Malisz clan wowed the WOMAD crowd and dropped by to have a chat after their set.
Alhousseini Anivolla & Maarja Nuut
Estonian folk musician Maarja Nuut and guitarist Alhousseini Anivolla (of Etran Finatawa) joined together for an absorbing collaboration on the BBC Radio 3 Charlie Gillett stage.
Ngawang Lodup, a former Buddhist monk, has been on a fascinating journey since leaving his homeland of Tibet. Lodup was the first world music act to be included in the BBC Introducing scheme, and we couldn’t wait to catch up with him at WOMAD where he treated us to an exclusive live performance.
