The Hot 8 Brass Band The Hot 8 Brass Band
WOMADelaide 2017 has revealed another eclectic batch of artists with The Hot 8 Brass Band, Dope Lemon, L-FRESH the Lion, D D Dumbo and Nattali Rize added to the 2017 bill, joining the already announced The Specials, Bebel Gilberto, Archie Roach and The Waifs.

Balkans’ gypsy-rock supergroup Emir Kusturica & the No Smoking Orchestra – 'a genre-defying and irreverent band' – and Austrian electro-swing pioneers Parov Stelar – whose insanely catchy music that has been used in advertising campaigns across the world – are also part of today's additions.

In total contrast comes one of the greatest African stars of her generation, the majestic and gifted Oumou Sangare. Endearingly referred to as the ‘Songbird from Wassoulou’, Sangare’s music is funky and vibrant.

Australian artists will include: the dreamy new Angus Stone side project, Dope Lemon; the loops and soundscapes of D D Dumbo and the socially-conscious hip hop of L-FRESH The Lion and “Attractor” from Queensland’s Dancenorth and leading choreographers Gideon Obarzanek and Lucy Guerin.
