I don’t really know where to start with this post – too much to try and cover in a short post!
We were on site on and off from Weds till Monday and the event was a great success. The format was people could arrive from the Friday night and get their camping gear set up and have a meal. Saturday all day there were amazing performances of West African music from both students and professional artists. Each person could do one workshop of their choice in one of the marquees or in the main barn area for African dancing.
Apart from one or two things – the whole thing went off without a hitch and we’re hoping to do a longer event next year depending on a venue.
There are lots of photos up on various Facebook sites but for now here’s one to be going on with (I actually didn’t have time to take a single one – doh!)
This is us playing as part of Sankofa – a UK sabar group.
