This Summer will be Sensational!

After a really successful workshop with Mario Pam of Ile Aiye on Wednesday, the band is full of energy for the Summer season ahead!

Mario put us through our paces with some old-school Ile Aiye rhythms, exactly as they are played on the CDs, which will fit nicely into our Bloco Afro Brasil project.

We also learned yesterday that our new costumes may be ready by the end of this month, which is much quicker than anticipated. Then, all we will need is a suitable event to debut the show at.

Tonight, we are making the trip to Carrickmacross to play a festival there, and from now on, the season starts to pick up with confirmed gigs in Cavan, Drogheda, Belfast, as well as a few possible events closer to home – let’s hope the weather remains as good as it is now!
