24th -26th February 1995.Botanic Park. Adelaide.

Recordings and set lists.

    For most of the history of Womadelaide the good old Australian Broadcasting Corporation ( affectionately known as Auntie ) has documented the festival. However there have been lapses and rather strange turns in policy ( mostly due to budget cuts ) so there are gaps. Also, the ABC only ever set up recording facilities on stages 1-3 and some of the more interesting acts have appeared elsewhere. So its been left to tapers to fill the gaps here and there.

   Now we at the archive do not condone the unofficial taping of shows , especially for commercial gain, but we are an historical archive so we believe that its part of our function to let people know what music has been preserved over the years by whatever means . We present this list in that spirit , we do not know where you can acquire these recordings , whether they be TV , FM, AM or audience recordings and we will not help anyone in their search to acquire them , so please don't waste your time asking as we won't reply- unless you have some official research project you want help with .

1995 Recordings

  The third Womadelaide festival saw the ABC take a big step backwards and cut back their coverage. The only broadcast was on the Saturday night of the festival itself, most of the performances consisted of small snippets of 10 minutes or so with the final set of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan being broadcast in its entirety .

  Although the broadcast was six hours long a good part of this was interviews , interesting in some cases, but a shame when it came at the expense of the music.

  As no one seems to have audience taped this festival, we have to content ourselves with a very short list of preserved memories to enable us to relive the weekend .

: The Tent, where workshops were held in 1995, even in 2008 its possible to attend events of this small scale early in the morning at the Speakers corner stage !
