A historic live recording celebrating the 40th anniversary of a landmark cultural moment including performances by Echo and The Bunnymen, Peter Gabriel, Simple Minds, The Beat, The Drummers of Burundi, The Musicians of the Nile and many more. The process of restoring the 40-year-old audio tapes recorded at the first WOMAD festival began, overcoming many technical challenges to ensure these vital, historic performances were saved. This album is a window onto three days of amazing music – highlights from multiple stages, of artists from many corners of the globe.

WOMAD 1982: The Royal Bath and West Showground near Shepton Mallet, Somerset. The heart of the world in the heart of the West Country. A festival of new and traditional arts from four continents and over 20 countries.
