Womad in programme change
Bookmark and Share
The Womad Festival at Charlton Park in Wiltshire this weekend will have a late programme change, organisers have announced.

Due to a failed visa application, Bajah & the Dry Eye Crew have not been able to make it and although they can re-apply, time is running out.

While that may disappoint some heading to the event with their camping gear, it means Belgian-Congolese singer Baloji is set to appear in the Big Red Tent instead.

The festival site describes the artist as someone who, having been born in Africa, became a rapper after his European upbringing but returned home to see his separated mother and land of birth in 2007.

Since then his music has reflected a curiosity for the sounds and instruments of his birthplace.

Among the artists lined up to perform at the Malmesbury site this weekend are British performers like Strawberry, Brassroots and The Rascals.

Meanwhile, the international cast includes Tanzania's Culture Music Club - Grande Orchestre De Taarab de Zanzibar, Ladi 6 from New Zealand and Pa Bobo Jobarteh and Kaira Trio from Gambia.
