Three Real World Records artists, Totó La Momposina, The Gloaming and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan all feature on a CD celebrating 25 years of the WOMADelaide Festival.
The CD comes with the current issue of Songlines Magazine that is out now.
"WOMADelaide was presented for the very first time at the Adelaide Festival in 1992. The combination of the Festival's renowned high production standards, the late summer magic of Botanic Park and an inspired partnership with the UK-based WOMAD organisation was unique. Since these humble beginnings WOMADelaide has evolved to become an annual celebration that has changed the way audiences experience the diversity of cultures - through a window on the world that is welcoming and life affirming, where art matters and adds to the richness of so many people's lives. This compilation represents just a taste of the amazing artists who have enthralled us all over the past 25 years. We are grateful to them and everyone who has made this journey possible and a pleasure for all concerned." - Ian Scobie, WOMADelaide Director
