It was a fun weekend in LA dancing and drumming.

First there was the Gambian Independence Gala.

The Senegalese drummers from LA, Oakland & Boston gave us all an amazing set.

Here’s a clip of Aziz Faye bou Sing Sing

The next day was the Jamalaye Ubuntu Festival which was a great event; Dance classes, crafts, spoken word, food.

To start off the day was the Sabar class marking Aziz Faye’s 15 years teaching Sabar Dance in LA.
