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.
