Grant Smithies on Womad

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 4 March 2016

Founded by Peter Gabriel in 1982, WOMAD launched here in NZ a decade later (1992), with this year's event taking place March 18th-20th at Taranaki's Bowl of Brooklands. Grant Smithies checks out three key acts from this year's festival (Songhoy Blues, Asha Bhosle and De La Soul) and also unleashes a classic single from Manchester punk band, Buzzcocks, who are touring around the same time.
