ISSAMBA – Your Ultimate Journey Through the Depths of African Rooted-Rhythms, Friday Feb 14 at 8PM at the Community Hall

It has been a long time since I last put on an African music/dance event on the island. After seeing Issamba last year at the Port Theatre, I loved it so much that I promised myself to bring it to you all.
