Album 03: Gambia Trip April 2007
In April eleven of us travelled to The Gambia to study with the Guinean group 'Alatantou'. Over the course of the trip we took classes in drumming and dancing as well as spending time with the group in their homes and watching them perform in hotels. The group was started by Moussa Sylla and features his thirteen year old daughter Bundau as one of the dancers. During the trip we gave Moussa's wife, Fatumata, the money we had raised for her during the 'Music for Moussa' night. As well as plenty of drumming and dancing, we spent a fair bit of time on the beach and just hanging out, enjoying the African sun.
