Rainforest World Music FestivalMon 16 Jul 2012
Final day of the fest was a laid back semi-chilled affair. The typical festival chatter "coming back next year?" "Will you be back?" questions were playfully met with fun negative answers to counter the norm.... Choice responses include:
"No. The world ends this year, so there is no need to worry."
"No, I have had a premonition of my impending death, but it was nice to meet you."
"A giant space rat will soon swallow the whole planet, my religious leader told me, so I guess not."
"If you are implying that you will be here with your question, then I most definitely will not!"
That aside, the fest is pretty good and IS world music. The night's performers came from Congo, Spain, Borneo, and Brazil.... I would like to nominate the Bushwackers or Wolverines for next year - either would give people a correctish notion of Australian traditional music :)
First night La Zikabilo from France - they had a great vibe that had the whole tribe dancing.
Lowlight: 4 K walk home sat night on a sprained ankle after the shuttle just got me to the edge of the car parking. 2. There being NO lost property, meaning that my $200 sunnies went to land fill.
- Another stage elsewhere and a music program through day and night. At the moment its "dual" stages from 7.30 at night.
