This week WOMADelaide announced 11 more additions to the already stella 2016 line-up.
Over the past 20 years New York's hip-hop trio De La Soul have had an innovative approach toward music, impacting the hip-hop industry, as well as the jazz and funk scenes. The trio will be making an exclusive Australian performance for the festival and we can't be more excited.
Expect to hear some fresh material, as De La Soul's eighth album will be released a month after their appearance at WOMADelaide.
Singer-songwriter Sarah Blasko and indie-pop band Alpine will also be joining the diverse line-up. Last year Blasko released her fifth album Eternal Return, an ethereal synth-pop record, while Melbourne's Alpine also dropped their second release Yuck and are known for their glittering and kooky live shows.
Other acts joining The Cat Empire and Violent Femmes include:
- Asha Bhosle
- APY Choir
- Ainslie Wills
- Ajak Kwai
- Marcellus Pittman Unirhythm
- Tek Tek Ensemble
WOMADelaide 2016 is held from March 11 to March 14 in Adelaide's Botanic Park.

His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
Rose Callaghan’s comedic listicle is a welcome addition to the Rhino Room’s cracking line up.
