The Beat Artistes are back! With our African Drumming Master Samsou, we’ve been working hard over the summer in preparation for this event. Our new set raises the bar with heavy African rhythms, polished arrangements and choreographed dance moves. We’re really looking forward to taking this practice public, and what better place to do it than at a happening new African Dance Party event.
Joining us for the event and on the bill will be the outstanding African Drumming troupe, Kontaani. This hard working collective from Macclesfield are incredible to watch and perform with awesome energy and good vibes.
There will also be an early evening dance workshop to kick things off and later on DJ’s playing a range of quality African dance music.
Just to wet your appetite, here’s a video of one of the Beat Artistes, featuring Iya Sako, recent performances at Manchester’s Parklife festival. Watch the video then read on for details of the African Dance party, we’ll see you there! (more…)
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.
