Activity 2 Day 13 Week 3

Every year there is a huge music festival held in New Plymouth, New Zealand. It is called WOMAD. WOMAD stands for ‘World of Music, Arts and Dance.’ The festival began in 1980 and there are WOMAD festivals held every year in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Spain, Italy and The United Arab Emirates. They attract singers and performers from all around the world. Imagine that you are on the WOMAD organizing committee for next year. Which two musicians/bands would you invite to perform? On your blog tell us the names of the two musicians/bands and tell us a bit about them. Where are they from? What kind of music do they play?

So the two musicians I have picked is Beyonce and Justin Timberlake. Beyonce's music genres are contemporary R&B, Pop music and soul music. Beyonce's origins are Houston, Texas and the United states.

Justin Timerlake is a American singer, songwriter, actor and a record producer. He was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He was in the TV shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club when he was a child.


  1. Good choices, Makayla! I really like both Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. In fact, Beyonce is one of my favourite artists. I can remember listening to her when she was part of a girl group called 'Destiny's Child' way back in the 1990s. The band split up in 2005 but the girls are still pretty friendly.

    Interestingly, Justin was also part of a singing group called 'N'Sync' who sang and toured together from 1995-2002. After they split up, Justin went out on his own and started a solo singing career (just like Beyonce).

    I am sure that a number of people would come to WOMAD if both Beyonce and Justin Timberlake were performing. I know that I would!

    Thanks for choosing such interesting artists, Makayla. These are great choices :)

    All the best,


  2. Hello again,

    I would definitely go if THEY were performing, and I don't go to many live gigs either. Congrats! You have a new customer, AND I think you'd make a good promoter for shows.

    Keep up the good work... again. I say that all the time! haha!
