Womad New Zealand 2007 CD Released

The CD was released by Shock Records NZ through Border Music on Monday 12 February and features 16 tracks from some of the fantastic worldwide performers set to take to the stages at WOMAD New Zealand 2007 at New Plymouth's Brooklands Park and TSB Bowl from March 16-18.

The CD truly is a world music journey, beginning in Mali with a track from "the Golden Voice of Africa" Salif Keita, followed by sensational French/Swiss/Argentine tango act Gotan Project.

Next up is Kronos Quartet and Afrobeat superstar Femi Kuti from Nigeria, with tracks from New Caledonia's traditional Kanak performers Celenod, and the legendary Mahotella Queens from South Africa.

New Zealand's own Don McGlashan contributes a track, before the stunning sounds of Portugese fado singer Mariza, and Mexico's Lila Downs. Next up is Australia's Augie March, Chinese bamboo flautist Guo Yue and another Australian act, Lior.

The festival's incredible world tour continues - off to Israel for Yasmin Levy, and to Tuva for Huun Huur Tu, before coming back to New Zealand with a track from dDub and finishing with Indonesia's SambaSunda.
