It was another sun-drenched day for the Sunday of WOMADelaide 2020 and, while the program may have been missing some of the star power of other days, there was a host of great performances to enjoy.
Our highlights for the second day of this year’s WOMADelaide included The Blind Boys of Alabama, Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi, Aldous Harding, Spinifex Gum, Dyson Stringer Cloher and Salif Keita.
