WOMAD 2004

WOMAD 2004 Returns!

Just got back from WOMAD Singapore 2004. It was a bit of a disappoint since last year. Not enough Latin America music and the both the Africa and Arabic selection are too commercial for my liking. Though Talvin Singh and Sultan Khan put up 3 great performances. Talvin Singh plays Indian mix Electronic from UK and Sultan Khan plays authentic classical Indian music. Their collaboration session on Friday night was very moving. Sultan Khan's Saturday session bought back so much memory of my India trip. Then Talvin was DJ an excellent Club session
