Womadelaide 2006.

10-12th March 2006 .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 .

2006 Recordings

  A "bitser" year . The ABC returned with a full TV crew and the festival was reasonably documented on the ABC 2 digital TV station with a number of half hour- 15 minute sets being screened. The radio coverage was patchy . Orchestra Baobab, Bottine Souriante and Sharon Shannon seem to have been the only decent length recordings broadcast. Fortunately a few audience recordings have also surfaced to help fill in a bit more of the overall picture .
