Thievery Corporation joins the 2018 WOMADelaide line-up


Thievery Corporation is bringing a full band along with them to WOMADelaide. They have collaborated with announced line-up member Anoushka Shankar on their songs Mandala and Beloved.

Nicknamed ‘the thieves’, few artists are as diverse and Thievery Corporation, easily transitioning from space rock to hip-hop, Indian trip-hop, dub, French torch songs and shoe-gazer bliss. Their tenth studio album The Temple of I & I, differs from their previous releases as it delves into Jamaica’s music and culture.

Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton and Rob Garza bonded over their passion for Bossa Nova 21 years ago. Since then they have influenced a generation of electronic producers, collaborated with artists including David Byrne, Femi Kuti and Seu Jorge and headlined festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza.

The announced line-up so far includes Anoushka Shankar, The Avalanches, Dan Sultan, Thievery Corporation and Yirrmal and the Miliyawuti.

The full line-up for WOMADelaide will include over 40 international artists and Australian groups plus DJs and site artists. The full line-up will be released Tuesday November 21.
