With unreleased performances by Echo and the Bunnymen, Peter Gabriel, Simple Minds, The Beat, Robert Fripp, The Drummers of Burundi, The Musicians of the Nile, Salsa de Hoy and many more, this recording from the very first WOMAD festival reflects a diversity of programming unparalleled music that became the signature of the festival over the next four decades.

In July 1982, the Royal Bath and West Showground near Shepton Mallet, Somerset, was the chosen venue for what the organizers called "a world of music, arts and dance" (WOMAD for short): 5 stages, with 60 bands from over 20 countries. The intent of the festival was to recognize the influence of non-Western music on successful Western bands and musicians and to create a wider audience for that music by combining both in the same event: a festival that celebrated music as a language. universal.

The idea for the festival was born from a conversation between Peter Gabriel and director Mark Kidel, who shared an interest in the discovery of music from different cultures and the desire to make this music known to the British public.

"Our dream was not to spread world music in a rock festival, but to demonstrate that these great artists could be full-fledged headliners", remembers Peter Gabriel. “We wanted to show that
wherever you were born, of any color or language, of any religious or sexual orientation, powerful, passionate and joyful work would have a warm welcome at WOMAD ".

Kidel identified a group of post-punk music fans who ran Bristol Recorder magazine as the perfect accomplices to explore ideas on how to achieve this. Peter picked up the phone and called their office, and they were invited to attend a meeting. Among them was Thomas Brooman, who would become the festival director for over two decades. "Maybe we were short of professional and musical knowledge, but we certainly weren't short of enthusiasm"recalls Thomas.

Peter Gabriel: the new album at the end of 2022 and tour in 2023? All the clues and evidence

Peter Gabriel and the stages of his new album "I / O" (provisional title and not yet confirmed by the person concerned), in preparation for quite a few years. All the clues.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

All Peter Gabriel fans are wondering where is the new album.

The most recent clue comes on June 4, 2022 from Manu Katche, which, aAsked by the French newspaper Ouest-France about what he is working on, he replied: "At the end of the year I will release a new album with Peter Gabriel and in 2023 we will tour the US and Europe. I will also record a new album and release a book - with [French publishing house] Éditions Grasset, which will be introspective." .

Here is Peter's latest Facebook post dated October 30, 2021:

On October 21, in Milan, Peter revealed new details:

A precedent was the interview with UNCUT Magazine, dated July 16, 2020:

Earlier, in a June 16, 2020 interview with the BBC, had declared:

«As far as music is concerned, I haven't had as much time as I usually do, which is not as before. But there have been some news. There is a COVID song - well, there is a COVID lyrics, actually -. I have been asked to write something and it will probably turn into a song. So there are songs and pieces that go in the right direction ». (Interview by Matt Everitt).

In March 2020 Peter had written to a newspaper giving another indication of his compositional activity, although very slowly.

The site genesis-news.com had signaled Peter Gabriel's reaction to a Times article (see Matt LeDonne's image taken from genesis-news.com).

Peter has thus revealed that he is working on a new song on aging, called "So Much".

In an article of March 6, the newspaper The Times reported Phil Collins' words: "Rock old men should talk about their generation."

Peter took pen and paper and replied that he is working on one "song about aging" called "So Much".

The author of the Times article posted it on Twitter, confirming that it was Peter who replied.

In an interview with BBC Radio 6 Music in April 2019, Peter had talked about new songs and the album:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0003zly

In the winter of 2018 Peter published this post on Facebook:

Again fueling the hopes of fans.

To these indications must be added the songs that Peter only mentioned, such as "Here Comes Love?", which he spoke about on Facebook on October 28, 2014 or released in various ways and which have not yet been included in an album, such as "I'm Amazing", posted on YouTube on June 17th 2016 (read here how the song was received) and inspired by the life and battles of Muhammad Ali.

 

The song was followed shortly after "The Veil", arrived on 8 September 2016 (read here how the song was received). It was part of the Oliver Stone film "Snowden", but without joining the soundtrack (another indication that bode well).

At the moment the picture is complete, in the sense that some material is available to fans even if, having spent so much time, we would expect something more concrete. We'll see. If you want to stay updated on developments, subscribe to our newsletter below.
