So tar this year's concerts at the Open-air Ross Theatre in Princes Street Gardens have displayed an immense variety of music and dancing from around the world and from past and present. with more to come.

Taking the bandstand‘s stage at 7.30pm on Saturday 9 will be the ten-piece Orchestre Matimila, tronted by the charismatic Remmy Ongala. In their native Tanzania. the group are so popularthat it‘s said only the president is better known than Remmy Ongala. who Iollowed in the Iootsteps oi his father. also a musician, joining his tirst group at sixteen. Times have not always been so good torthe group as they are now. Orchestre Matimila in tact took their name from the local businessmen who sold them their instruments, so scarce are good guitars in Tanzania. They know how to use them though. and the group is an accessible jazz-tinged introduction to soukous music. The wondertul WOMAD have just released a Remmy Ongala and Orchestre Matimila LP, which has been sticking to the turntable quite a lot recenhy.

Edward II and The Red Hot Polkas. (Saturday 16 at 1pm) are quite a

diiterent proposition, being both home-grown (well, English anyway, which is close enough) and a deliberate mutation at a collection at eclectic inlluences. They take Airican music. calypso. a dose of English traditional music just to contuse things and wrap it all in a dub reggae style. Completely out there.

Also to come: Amayenge on Friday 22. The first ever visit to British shores by a Zambian group. and Iittingly they're a group who were presented with a trophy tor being the best band at 1986 by President Kaunda. Fifteen

musicians. dancers and acrobats make upthis excellentoutiit. ' Sunday 31 sees Udichee playing both traditional and contemporary songs from Bengal. Hindu alongside Muslim.
