238 – The WOMADelaide Show

The WOMADdelaide Show - Steve Davis and Moussa Diakite on The Adelaide Show Podcast

This week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, is really The WOMADelaide Show because it was all recorded under the trees in Botanic Park where some 95,000 people milled and danced to a wide array of music over the Adelaide Cup long weekend. We had many guests, and they all helped build a patchwork image of what WOMAD means to the people who take part.

This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is a wine from Yalumba.

And in the musical pilgrimage … we here from WOMADelaide performers, Hartway.
