womadelaided.....



hey this ones way off my usual topic but everybody should have a night off eh...
off my sis and i went to womad on friday night and as it turns out we may have had the best weather it rained again this afternoon and is going to be a fairly cool wkd, we got plenty of sprinkles on fri night and glad i packed a hoody! we did find shelter under a couple of trees but wasn't too bad...

a great night it was with the opening around 6pm with the Kaurna welcome followed by the Yamato dummers now that was some routine! a lil spanish fare with Ojos de Brujo and some yummy organic curry for tea.. i did the usual rounds of all the foodies asking my usual allergy ?'s luckily they had some great dishes..and sorry about the sound and quality in the vids these were taken on my phone...

and wow the bar got a workout.. then we caught up with Ethiopiques followed by Le Copagnie Transe Express performing in the rain way up in the air! and finally The Skatelites now those guys brought out the crazy I wish i could have got a shot of the guy dancing around us with the enormous water bottle you know the size you'd have in your kitchen or office he was having so much fun dancin around and beating that bottle kind-of in time..hehehhe..it was just too dark i did try!! and then there was the wedding! i def saw a wedding dress, a catering platter, a wedding cake all cut up.... and lots of guys in white pants and tee shirts with groom, bridesmaid dresses- not the one up in the tree! brother of the bride shirt, brother in law of the bride on the back....it was a fun night, back to pots tomorrow my biggies have been sitting under damp towels and tonnes of placky so they'll be fine for tomorrow...ciao for now

  2. well, if it's gettin' cool there, it must be getting warm here. 60 degrees tomorrow. love most latin music, looks like you all had a ball. can't tell if Ojos de Brujo is a band or place that you ate. i'm assuming it's a band because it's a great name. eyes of the shaman/wizard

  4. Looks like a fun night!!! I am inspired by the video of you drying out your plate with a torch. My hands are always freezing in the studio, maybe I should try the torch, so the steam will warm my hands while I work. haha
