More acts added to the Womad 2016 line-up

Konono No 1, King Creosote, Hackney Colliery Band and more

With a bill that already includes the likes of John Grant, George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic, Baaba Maal, Asian Dub Foundation, Anoushka Shankar, Hot 8 Brass Band, Charles Bradley, Roots Manuva and St Germain among many, many others, WOMAD have added more names to the bill. 
 
Songhai by Toumani Diabate & Juan Carmona & Josemi Carmona & Javier Colina & Guests revisits the two Songhai albums from back in the day, the collaboration between Malian kora legend Toumani Diabate, double-bassist Danny Thompson and the young flamenco force Ketama. The heat of flamenco guitars mixes with the coolness of the kora, creating an intoxicating mix of fire and ice. 
 
From the Democratic Republic of Congo are Konono No 1. Known over the last ten years for their fascinating series of Congotronics albums, the band actually goes all the way back to the mid-60s when they first developed their unique DIY approach to both instrumentation and amplification, utilising whatever was close to hand in their hometown of Kinshasa. 
 
Another man who’s employed a distinctly DIY approach over the years is Kenny Anderson, better known as King Creosote. The long-time spiritual leader of Fife’s Fence Collective, he put out a crazily prolific series of homemade CDRs before the world caught up with his particular folk-rock brew.
 
Others announced today are Bamba Wassoulou Groove, Fuel Fandango, Hackney Colliery Band, Inna Modja, Iration Steppas, Kapucha, Malmesbury Schools Project with Escola de Carnaval, Onra and Twelfth Day.
 
Day tickets to WOMAD Charlton Park 2016 are now available for Saturday and Sunday, priced at £90 per adult, these will be available in-person on the day as long as they haven’t been sold out. Tickets available from the WOMAD Website.

WOMAD Festival takes place at Charlton Park, Malmesbury, Wiltshire from the 28th to the 31st July 2016
