The first event of the new-look, evening concert series for WOMADelaide featured Lior, Archie Roach and Sarah Blasko. Here's all the social & event photos.
Lior is remarkable, his voice caresses the audience and his song writing is extraordinary.
When the Adelaide Festival booked Lior to perform the newly commissioned Chamber version of Compassion, he found that he was on stage with that show for two performances with a two-day gap in between. So what better idea than to do a one man gig on the Saturday night?

Lior has an eclectic fan base, his music being played on Triple J, ABC Radio and even being used by a contestant on Australian Idol.
Ahead of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, The Idea of North have recently returned to Australia from a tour of Switzerland and Germany, where they performed to critical acclaim.

“I can’t wait to share my new music with the always amazing WOMADelaide crowd”, Lior said of playing his new material for the first time.
Lior and Nigel Westlake will pair up for a one night only performance on 7 February at the Festival Theatre.
