WOMEX 2005, Largest World Music Conference a Winner

Newcastle, UK - With the ceremonial granting of the WOMEX Award 2005 to Zanzibar's legendary Bi Kidude, the world's biggest expo for World Music and global sounds came to an end at The Sage Gateshead in Newcastle (UK) on Sunday, October 30. The singer, well in her nineties yet still sporting a bonecrushing handshake, received the honors in recognition of her more than 80 years of singing and serving as a cultural mediator and advisor of the younger generations, including on matters of sex and marriage, which make her a proper symbol of World Music's liberating and strengthening powers in general.

彼女のアルバム 《Zanzibar》 は Stern's Music On-line で試聴できる。節回しに、えも言われぬ味わいがある。
