A special evening of music and dance WOMAD event at the Eden Project in Cornwall, from 7pm until midnight.

Headlining are the Afro Celts, innovators of tribal electronica and touring for the first time this summer as a fully live band, showcasing new material from their acclaimed fourth album, 'Seed'. Also appearing are Mexico's LOS DE ABAJO, one of the world's hottest live acts right now and winners of this year's 'BBC Radio 3 World Music Award' for 'Best Latin Artist' (these performances will take place outdoors on a specially-constructed Lake Stage within the Eden Arena). Also just added are 1 Giant Leap.

The evening will also feature performances within the huge and specially-lit structures of the Humid Tropical and Warm Temperate biomes, with Zimbabwe's Chartwell Dutiro and the remarkable South African xhosa singer, Madosini in a collaborative appearance together with UK singer-songwriter Patrick Duff.

A special feature of the evening will also be a massive night-time drum event inside the vast Humid Tropical Biome hosted by the wonderful Dhol Foundation.

The night will also offer the 'Small World Asia' sounds of DJ Pathaan and a late night DJ session from DJ Desperado.
