Drumroots Presents; The Beat Artistes with Maitre Samsou and Iya Sako at Parklife Festival 2012

We’re taking our newer and bigger group, The Beat Artistes to this year’s Parklife festival, Sunday June 10th 2012. This group, guided by Maitre Samsou, has been working hard over the winter since our debut appearance to hone and polish our highly dynamic and choreographed performance set ready for the big stage. Parklife festival attracts thousands of dance music revellers who will take an hour’s break from drum and bass, techno and dubstep to witness this awesomely powerful drumming group. Adding to this performance spectacle we’ll be joined by the incredibly clear and powerful sounds of djembe soloist Iya Sako.
