Omar Souleyman to play WOMADelaide

Womadelaide have announced a small preview of their lineup for 2011, and I am really pleased to see that it includes Omar Souleyman. I only recently got one of his cds and on listening to it my immediate thought was “I really hope that he’ll be at WOMAD next year” though I really wasn’t too sure of how likely it would be. There’s been quite a few gig-related disappointments lately so it’s great to have some good gig news for Adelaide.

The lineup so far is Afro Celt Sound System, Alan Kelly Quartet, Angus and Julia Stone, Creole Choir of Cuba, Hanggai, Nitin Sawhney, Omar Souleyman, Rajendra Prasanna, Rango
