Taste of Southern Africa Jam In The Park

When I founded my company Taste of Southern Africa, one of my driving forces was to try and find ways of celebrating the warmth of my African heritage with the UK and bring people together through the culture.

I decided earlier this year one of the ways I would do this would be through open jam sessions. I hosted the first one last Saturday in London Fields, and what a beautiful day it turned out to be! I am looking forward to running these monthly over the summer period.

Here are two short videos from early on in the afternoon.
