One dream of mine!

One of the best global festivals around is the W.O.M.A.D festival. (World of Music arts and Dance). I went to Reading (Reading, England just outside of London) festival about 3 year's ago, and was blown out of the water with this festival. This is the festival I have dreamt about for many years and, here I'am in the mist of it all. I could not believe my ears and eyes.
If you like enjoy the world music sound, then you will love this festival. I just walked around the festival grounds with this big grin on my face, just enjoying the sounds and smells of the world. I was truly in my zone here. My moment my zen for life. I heard everything from Indian, Mali, celtic, tuval, Cosmic to deep trip house beats being played all over the festival grounds. You will also find food from all over the world being prepared and served. Your taste buds will just explode with excitement!
The most amazing thing about these type of festival's are, you'll even see little kids age's 8 & 9 attend the se festival. They even know a lot of the group's that perform at these festival. Now that to me was impressive. I know for a fact that in America we know nothing of these group's( if it's not Rap, Pop or Rock) and exspecially little kids. It was such a pleasant surprise to see so many little kids with so much musical knowledge and culture in their blood. I could really relate to this, because I grew up with the same type of background.
