Do you know about this?
Wow! What a massive month it has been. The Afro Foli Festival was a huge success with fantastic workshops and incredible performances. A huge thank you to Highlife for an amazing show, Homegrown for fabulous food, Renaes Pantry for choice as cakes and chai, Festuri for the bar, and to all of the Foli Kan drumming ensemble, the Muso Foli Dance Troupe, the Rhythm Culture Showcase performers and last but not least Yenenesh and Bassidi for their brilliant workshops. What a day! I think we needed a week of sleep after that one 🙂 But no, the joys of young children have kept us very awake ever since! Bassidi has left us and is on his way to California to teach at Camp Fareta. We have had such a inspirational time with him and his beautiful wife Freya. What a special treat they are. We look forward to doing it all again next year and look out for some more video and footage coming soon 😉 (There are a few taster photos below, thanks again Freya!!)
Now, for August! Here we are back in action and the weather is warming up which is always a good sign for us… warmer weather and people come out to drum! Yay! We would love to share our brand new video that was taken in our drum and dance classes earlier in the year. We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the drummers and dancers that participated, contributed to the footage, and let us interview you!!. It really is a brilliant clip made by the videographer genius Jimmy Halliday and without all of your testimonials, awesome moves, drumming hands and smiling faces we couldn’t have made it happen. So Thank You!!
So, do you know about this? If you didn’t, you do now! Come join us. New courses starts tomorrow from 5.30pm!
