WOMADELAIDE 2013...Music to save the Planet. They call it Mad March...Mad because a year full of delights is crammed into one month...Mad because you'd be mad to miss it. I'm talking about Adelaide of course...that peaceful state capital of South Australia...that for one month of each year becomes the cultural capital of the World...showcasing Art (Turner landscapes), Comedy (Fringe Fest...

Couldn't stop smiling...
Imaging all that world music and dancing and friends and people united in joy just put a huge grin on my face. What a great antidote to the suffering in the world, especially iin your beloved Mali. So sorry to hear the Caravan of Peace for Artists had been cancelled, but so happy to hear that your African friends had a place to make music, and you had a place to dance with them. Thanks for the very happy blog.

THANKS TARA...HAVE A DANCE FOR ME
Music to save the Planet...should be more of it. I've been attending a lot of music events recently which has been opening my eyes that music is more than entertainment...messages are conveyed...souls are uplifted. Enjoy your music Tara...and have a dance for me.

Music, Music, Music
Thanks David - really rubbed it in what we missed out on this year - maybe I should spend more time in Oz...... Mali has a very special place for all of us and thank goodness that we can support the music on the world stage. Music festivals are a great leveller I think especially if you treat yourself to a performance by someone you have never heard of before - you can be transported in a moment. Have to think seriously about next year. Regards, Ros.

HI ROS
Another Timbuktu & Malian music reunion...someone has to do it...gotta say we don't mind it fell on us. Hope you guys are well.

What a wonderful list of musicians from all over the world. Really appreciate your passionate writing about politics and tragedy and its effect on musicians -- their music and lives -- in Mali and Syria. Especially interesting to read about your conversation with Vieux Farka Toure. Quite jealous that you got to hear Souad Massi live as well as all of the other musicians. You've given us another great reason (out of many) to visit you guys someday! Dance on~~

Just what I needed for post trip blues- just as I remembered it - well done "dancing one". For the record, I thought your camel dancing had lifted a level ;)

Another great shot. You contrast the maze of travel landscape shots with these beauties.

HI ANDREA
This guy captures the vibe of the festival. Interesting he's wearing a Felani hat from Mali that he bought in Oz...kinda appropriate. Hope you listened to the music link while looking at the photos. If not, read my instructions and give it a go.
