A musical journey featuring djembe, dun-dun, ngoni, Fulani flute, kora, songs and dance.
SIDIKI DEMBELE from Ivory Coast is an internationally renowned star of the djembe drum who has been residing in the UK since he became lead soloist for the former worldwide touring show Afrika Afrika. West African griot (lineage of musicians and storytellers) Sidiki also specialises in the Ngoni, a traditional stringed instrument.
Sidiki will be joined by BABA GALLE, Guinean maestro of the Fulani flute and vibrant Malian drummer and dancer YAHAEL CAMARA-ONONO.
This show is a unique opportunity to see these three brilliant West African artists as well as Bucks based African drumming groups and musicians AFRICA JUNCTION (www.africa-junction.co.uk) and HARTBEATS VITAE DRUMMERS (members of Justine Hart's African drumming classes www.hartbeats.co.uk)
Sidiki and his musicians have been working on a series of collaborative performances with West African drumming ensembles in the UK in order to raise money for The Brothers Tour project - all proceeds will go to the Denifari Music School, Abobo, Ivory Coast.
This show is taking place in High Wycombe's beautiful and atmospheric venue, (previously St Johns Church) The Arts4every1 Centre, Desborough Road, High Wycombe HP11 2PU
