This year the already legendary music festival WOMAD Gran Canaria takes place again in the Santa Catalina Park. Musicians from Mali, Cuba, Spain, Jamaica, the UK, Ethiopia, Algeria, France, Morocco, Angola, Cote dIvoire , China, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Poland and Brasil are giving to the event an international touch, as every year.
The fact that Las Palmas is the connection point of Europe, Atrica and South America is also reflected in the origins of the artists. Furthermore, the Womad Las Palmas takes place only a few (hundred) metres from the Canteras Beach, one of the most beautiful city beaches on earth.
Las Palmas is worth a visit, not only for the WOMAD 2010.
Where to get the tickets?
Tickets are not necessary, because all of the events of the WOMAD are totally for free. There are not only numerous concerts for free but also a big range of workshops and events to participate to during the day.
Futhermore, there will be a lot of international dishes available: which means party for all sences.
The recent programme of 2010 has not yet been published but will soon be available on the official web site of the WOMAD.
