Joliba West African Drum and Dance School

Educational workshops, performance and development

Hi Stacy,

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and Dave for your excellent workshop at our African Summer School. The children loved finding out about the different instruments and I thought it was great to see all the children involved, smiling and confident in their dance moves. A fun day was had by all.

Many thanks for the wonderful music workshop that you provided along with your colleague, Sekou Kompo. The authentic percussion instruments were a real treat! The children and staff appreciated all the hard work that you obviously put into the planning so that all of the 120 pupils were included. We have now confidently moved onto our own compositions and are following the whole thing up with an African art project.

Many thanks

Many thanks for all your hard work, energy and enthusiasm yesterday. You certainly made a favorable impression on all the students;they have given me some really positive feedback regarding your sessions. I look forward to working with you again in the near future on similar projects.

Best wishes

The music and dancing was great; really lively and colourful. The music really added to the atmosphere of the event. Stacey and her daughter even managed to get our catering manager up for a dance. I have since received a lot of feedback from those who attended – all very complimentary!

Kamara performed at our Hupendi Muziki Wangu private club night in Stoke on Trent on 19th August 2006, they were, amongst other things, an awesome act that “had” the crowd almost from the moment they began their set.”They were very professional both on the stage and off it; I will definitely be booking them again.
