Out to launch

We had the launch for Womadelaide in Botanic Gardens. Perfect sunny day - in the shade of towering trees with magpies doing elegant swooping fly-bys, lorikeets twittering in packs and huge, vivid rosellas chattering from aloft. Even the odd crow came to check out the gathered crowd. As the speakers droned on, a sequence of rather lovely girls in black magically materialised from the shrubbery carrying platters of the most exquisite finger-food - olivebread with roasted aubergine and soft goat cheese, mini bloody marys with scampi, cheese and rice balls dipped in tomato salsa, fragrant cold rolls...
It omened beautifully for the best of musical experiences. I will ever love Womad.
