Around 70 solo musicians and groups from around the world will perform at WOMADelaide in Botanic Park this long weekend. Here, director Ian Scobie gives InDaily his top 10 must-see musicians and shows.
WOMADelaide has added more than 50 extra acts to complete a 2018 line-up spanning everything from Israeli hip-hop, New York gypsy punk and Scandinavian folk to Indigenous rap and vintage Aussie rock.
