Mwalimu Express presents
Sunday 18 February
In a nutshell
A glorious culturally conscious afternoon for the whole family featuring live music, cinema, dance, games, workshops and the best of vibes.
Each month we feature a different live act with African connections, DJ Sets from Rita Ray and Max Reinhardt, African cinema with introduction and Q&A’s led by Andy Jones of Screen Station. This month's headline act is Modou Toure, hailing from Senegal, and heir of the legendary group Touré Kunda, the first African group to achieve worldwide fame in the 1980s.
Lucy Angell John’s dance session for kids lasts all afternoon along with the Oware Society’s non stop playing of the oldest board game in the world, Oware, as played in Ghana.
Plus, enjoy Kunle's African street food fresh from the pot.
Talk, dance, clap, cheer, drink, eat, and share a celebration of African culture.
What to Expect
There are two live sets from the visiting artist every session followed by a film, a feature or a selection of shorts. The dance workshop for kids goes on from 2 till 4 and there are Oware board games led by teachers from the Oware Society each session.
Every month: DJ sets and hosting from Rita Ray (BBC World Service) and Max Reinhardt (Late Junction BBC Radio3). Family activities, stalls from Open the Gate The African Market, Dom’s CD Stall, face painting and portraiture, and other surprises on a monthly basis. The Richest Mix at Rich Mix for sure!
