I took some pictures of my friends playing their ridiculously bouncy sets.
I also found some peaceful, mournful scenes.
In such a lively & colourful place it just goes to show we see what we want to see.
As ever Womad introduced me to a wide range of amazing musicians and djs from all over the world. Batida, the Correspondents, Dizraeli & The Small Gods, Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate and the Balkan Beat Box all got my hips moving.
But these guys stole the show for me. Incredible skill, talent, humour & humility - an unbeatable combination.
Plus check out the double bass balalaika!
