Thomas Brooman, Co-Creator Of The Term World Music & Co-Founder Of WOMAD Festival

By The World Music Foundation

Thomas Brooman has always had a vision of a smaller musical world -- from his early years spent among fellow awe-struck concertgoers during the European Rock-&-Roll boom, to his later work cultivating a collective of artists as co-founder of the globally inspired World of Music Arts and Dance festival (WOMAD). We talk about the relationship between musicians and international markets and get a behind-the-scenes look into his involvement in the creation of the term ‘World Music’- in all of its complexities.   Here’s an external link to every Musical Mention in this episode: 0:13 WOMAD World of Music, Art, and Dance Festival 1:51 Cheb Khaled 4:26 Punk Rock 5:41 Bossa nova 5:44 Samba 9:38 Institute of Contemporary Arts in London 10:28 Topic Records 10:28 GlobeStyle Record 10:30 Ben Mandelson 10:33 Roger Armstrong 10:36 African music 13:17 Giuseppe Verdi 13:17 Ludwig van Beethoven 13:17 Maurice Ravel 15:01 Ian Anderson 15:03 fRoots Magazine 16:05 Blues 16:06 Bluegrass 16:28 Saxophone 16:29 Guitar 16:58 Qawwali 17:07 Harmonium 19:18 Ravi Shankar 19:23 Hugh Masekela 19:29 Grazing in the Grass 19:53 WOMAD First Festival 1982 19:55 Echo and the Bunnymen 20:17 The Beat 20:25 The Drummers of Burundi 20:36 Pete de Freitas 20:54 All My Colours (Zimbo) 22:20 WOMAD Blues and Rhythm Fest 1989 22:30 Ali Farka Toure 22:30 Taj Mahal 23:54 Youssou N’Dour 25:06 Billy Cobham 25:22 Real World Studios 25:41 Asere 27:35 Remmy Ongala 29:08 S.E.
