OPENING PARTY

Thursday 20th OCTOBER       6:30PM

We will be launching the 15th Festival in style at this party event, which is open to all, featuring music from Afro-Tema, food, drinks and dancing along with presentations introduced by our special guest and British-Ghanaian actress, Michelle Asante. The event is hosted by Menelik Education CSN Foundation. 

 

About Afro-Tema

Afro-Tema's unique blend of African dance music is composed by Makhou N'Diaye - a distinguished musician in Senegal and the UK. The music is a dedication of West African rhythms sliced into a World Music melting pot of afro-latin sounds, hi-life, reggae beats, popular mbalax and a twist of jazz. The melodic arrangements boast strong vocals and solid percussion, and some simply great sinewy guitar lines. Afro-Tema play from the heart of Senegal, a beat loud and clear on the World Music circuit.

Michelle Asante

Michelle is an extremely talented actress who was recently seen in LUCKY MAN on Sky 1 as well as FATHER BROWN Series 4 on BBC 1. She can now be seen in the BBC's OUR GIRL. Michelle was nominated for a Broadway World Award for SUNSET BABY as Best Featured Actress in a Play and also for a Black Entertainment Film Fashion & Television Award (BEFFTA) for Best Actress in a Television Show in MONROE.
