The second round of works was announced for Womad 2019, and for one of the performers there will be a lot of bunch of houses.
Natalya Sheppard, born in Taranaki, known as MC Tali, says she can not wait to play in New Plymouth when the March next day returns to Brooklands City Park.
"I heard that it was pretty colorful, cultural and shows a lot of world music. My parents were several times and always say it's incredible, so I'm excited to see myself.
"It has been a while since I played Taranaki, and also at the TSB Light Festival, so there are two domestic shows."
* Taranaki welcomes another 10 years of the Womad Festival
* Womad announces a strong line of Kiwi together with a diverse world music
* First published acts for Womad 2019
Sheppard has a busy summer in front of her, which she said was "normal".
Prior to her performance in Womad, she will tour the country at festivals including Northern Bass, Mangawhai, north of Auckland, Rhythm and the Alps, in Cardron Valley, near Wanaka on the South Island, Splore, in the Tapapakanga Regional Park south of Auckland, and Homegrown, in Wellington.
Sheppard said that her performance in Womda is an opportunity for people to see what she is doing and for those who are not familiar with her music to come and see what she is.
Also, in the second Womad, jazz in Southern London and blues duo are also announced. Correspondents, French "80s group Original Gypsies, German DJ and singer Shantel & Bucovina Club Orchestra and Sona Jobarteh, the first professional female skilled player of the bark, West African string instrument and Janis Claxton Dance performed during the whole festival.
Joining MC Tali in the strong New Zealand line with the characters of Bark, The Black Seeds and Nadia Reid is the Animal Congress.
Sheppard said she was most excited to share her account with a young Northland artist TEEKS, who was primarily announcing.
"I'm his big fan," she said.
