Every year there is a huge music festival held in New Plymouth, New Zealand. It is called WOMAD. WOMAD stands for ‘World of Music, Arts and Dance.’ The festival began in 1980 and there are WOMAD festivals held every year in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Spain, Italy and The United Arab Emirates. They attract singers and performers from all around the world. Imagine that you are on the WOMAD organising committee for next year. Which two musicians/bands would you invite to perform? On your blog tell us the names of the two musicians/bands and tell us a bit about them. Where are they from? What kind of music do they play?

I would definitely invite Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll and Alicia keys who are my 2  top favourite singers.
Shakira was born in Colombia at Barranquilla on February 2 in 1977, she is 39 years old now. Shakira’s musics makes me dance! One of my favourite song she has written was the song she sang from the animation movie Zootopia = the song is called : Try everything. The song was released last year 2016.
Alicia keys was born in the United States of America in New York City at some place called Hell's Kitchen in January 25, 1981. She’s 35 years of age.I like her music because sometimes her voice rises up and she sings high. One of my favourite songs she has written  is called the = New York .


  1. What great choices, Von!

    Shakira and Alicia Keys are both excellent examples of really talented female artists. I love that Alicia writes all of her own music and often plays the piano to accompany her songs. I have been a fan of her work for years. In fact, I used to listen to her CD called 'As I Am' on repeat when I lived overseas. I spent a year in Japan and there was only one music store in the city that sold English albums. When I went into the store they only had 10 CDs to choose from - one of which was 'As I Am' and another of which was called 'The Breakthrough' by Mary J Blige. I bought them both and listened to them so often that I can now sing every single song on both records without any help!

    Shakira is also a great songstress and I have always respected her as an artist. I didn't realise that she recorded a song for the 'Zootopia' soundtrack. I'll have to go to Youtube to check it out.

    Thanks for the great post, Von. Keep it up!!!


  2. Hey Von
    I have not heard of Shakira or Alicia but I watched the movie Zootopia. The songs were pretty good. Great job.
