WOMAD in Taormina

WOMAD stands for World of Music, Arts and Dance, expressing the central aim of the WOMAD festival - to bring together and to celebrate the many forms of music, arts and dance drawn from countries and cultures all over the world.
WOMAD was originally inspired by Peter Gabriel: "Pure enthusiasm for music from around the world led us to the idea of WOMAD in 1980 and thus to the first WOMAD festival in 1982. The festivals have always been wonderful and unique occasions and have succeeded in introducing an international audience to many talented artists.
This year WOMAD will be returning to the spectacular Teatro Greco on the Mediterranean hillsides of Taormina for three evenings of concerts this July 13-15, with a thrilling line-up of international artists.
The Teatro Antico is constructed within the spectacular ruins of a Greek amphitheatre overlooking Mount Etna and the bays below - a venue that's hard to beat for atmosphere and location.
The WOMAD 2007 program:

July 13th 2007 Gilberto Gil
July 14th 2007 Buena Vista Social Club
July 15th 2007 Robert Plant
