A WOMAD, World of Music, Arts and Dance foi criada em 1980, entre outros, por Peter Gabriel e pretende mostrar a capacidade comunicativa da música e dança e outras expressões artísticas.
“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.”
“Equally important, the festivals have also allowed many different audiences to gain an insight into cultures other than their own through the enjoyment of music. Music is a universal language, it draws people together and proves, as well as anything, the stupidity of racism.”
– Peter Gabriel
