WOMADelaide: José González


Twenty years since Veneer, his uncompromisingly candid, game-changing debut, José González celebrates its anniversary with this special solo show. The singer-songwriter of Argentinian heritage is revered for his trademark classical guitar, understated vocal melodies and introspective, bittersweet folk. Veneer went platinum in the UK and his Swedish homeland, as well gold in Australia and New Zealand and his popularity has continued to grow, thanks to his 2007 album In Our Nature and the inclusion of several of his songs in the 2013 film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. His goal is to create “good music [that is] beautiful and at times groovy” but also “at closer glance, intriguing and at times provocative”. While he delves into complex themes, he and his meticulously crafted music remain dependably quiet and unassuming, and a constant source of wonder to millions of people worldwide.

Held on the traditional lands of the Kaurna People, WOMADelaide – World Of Music Arts and Dance - is an iconic open-air festival celebrating cultural discovery in the heart of Adelaide’s stunning Botanic Park / Tainmuntilla. The Worlds Festival, since 1992, is a truly unique part of the Australian festival landscape, showcasing the best, the essential – and the surprising – in music, arts, dance and ideas from around the world.
