High life + African Easter in London
Hi Peeps, I just experienced
a very nice weekend in This big smoke city that's London. This is the best Easter weekend I had for a decade.
-On Thursday I performed at Bernies Grant Performing Arts center in Tottenham as part of a double bill with Buky Leo (ex Fela Egypt 70 sax player) + his band, where I met great people. The likes of Rikki Stein (friend and long time Fela manager), Sarah Ebanja (chair woman at the center), Saphire Reggae (Aka Melanie - Dj + singer). I jammed with the great percussion player R. Olatunde Baker.
-On Friday I went to the Spitafield market near brick lane and was rewarded by a fantastic party. Music, story telling, great vibe, nice crowd, good people, good food, beautiful colours all over the place, All this was put together by the great Organisation that is Open The Gate and it's called The African Market (a monthly event).
- Yesterday Saturday I ended the day at Richmond Kessie 50 years Birth day celebration in a cosy packed and nice venue: Servant Jazz in Dalston. The music was just fabulous. High life of a high standard served by the Great Kary Bannerman, Jojo Yates and the great Nana Tsiboe
