Last night, the 10th world music festival kicked off in Adelaide city, South Australia, with a star studded performance by African artists. The African goddess of song, Miriam Makeba, was on the centre stage.
In fact, African stars had the Australian audience on their feet as the mesmerizing fusion of traditional and contemporary dance rhythms started to take hold. And the crowd, increasingly, warmed to the healing songs of the versatile Cameroon diva Coco Mbassi.
In the true spirit of world music, this year’s festival has attracted 430 celebrated artists from 27 countries around the world.
