Saw the youth at our first rehearsal of the year yesterday. Wow. What a great and powerful rehearsal…filled with the rich experience they have gained in Ghana and bonds that really cannot be described but which will enhance our performances for sure. Some incredibly tight and dynamic playing. We did a huge stick drumming session on Tokwoe, the piece we travelled to see and participate in, in a rural area of Ghana on our recent trip. See the post! I am very excited about the season!
Some small changes….we say goodbye to Liam, Angie and Lief who have all been connected to Baobab for AGES. We will hold a special “Sankofa” ceremony on Nov 27 at our Rhythm Café to say goodbye. We are joined by new members Clara and Gabriel, both moving up from the ROOTS class with lots of experience to bring.
