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.

Taste of Southern Africa Cultural Arts Festival

I'm very excited to be two weeks away from the launch of Taste of Southern Africa Cultural Arts Festival on October 21st. This two day festival is aimed at sharing the cultural arts of southern Africa with the UK during Black History Month.

It'll be a great opportunity to try out something new, make new friends, and share in the colourful culture of southern Africa.

We've got a great line up of dance and music workshops and a fantastic concert to round off the day.

Tickets are available from: www.tasteofsouthernafrica.com/tickets
