WOMAD 2014 is the British debut for Bowers & Wilkins Sound System. Four speaker stacks each 3.5m tall, use the acoustic design and technologies of Bowers & Wilkins award-winning loudspeakers in a massively enlarged format. Sound System reproduces melodies, rhythms and soundscapes so clearly, so powerfully and with such realism that you’ll almost believe you are one of the artists making them.
WOMAD festival has been a pioneer when it comes to global music
for over twenty years, bringing sounds and rhythms from all over
the world to a devoted and passionate audience whether that be Jamaican Skank, Irish Folk, Indian Bhangra, or the rhythms of Mali.
But its aims are always the same - to excite, to inform, and to
create awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural
society through love of music.
Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound has had a long and fruitful relationship with Peter Gabriel’s Real World. Working in tandem, every month a collection of exclusive studio-quality album length downloads are made available to our online community. Thanks to our work with Real World, Society of Sound has established itself as a place where people come for ideas and inspiration, to find out about new sonic developments and learn from people whose passion is taking sound to its absolute limits.
