We are looking forward to joining a range of percussionists at Earth Songs – a night “off the grid” world music celebration.
Earth Songs features high-energy percussive music from Tamashii Taiko Drummers, African Drummers, Dubtext (live electronica!) and of course AKSamba.
For those of us who can’t make it down to WOMAD, we bring a slice of world music to the beautiful Kawai Purapura Retreat Centre in Albany, just 20 minutes’ drive from Auckland’s CBD.
It will be a fun, family-friendly, alcohol-free evening celebrating dance music from all over the world. There will also be a twilight eco market featuring food and stalls focusing on ecological sustainability.
The whole evening will be “off the grid”, powered without electricity.
Presales are just $15 from www.kawaipurapura.co.nz or $20 cash on the gate. Children 12 and under come free. Bring your instrument if you want to join in the jam at the end!
