Jally Kebba Susso And Manding Sabu

Born into 74 generations of West African musical heritage, Gambian griot Jally Kebba Susso skilly blends the traditional repertoire with his own concoction of heady jazz. Playing the kora, or traditional harp, his African funk sound king 4d is accessible and uplifting, filled with intoxicating rhythmical layers that give him music depth and intrigue.

Jally Kebba Susso has honed his own sound over years of experimentation on the London underground scene since he relocated to the UK in 2002. He’ll be joined by his band Manding Sabu, with whom he has recorded two albums. Veterans of UK festivals such as Shambala and Secret Garden Party, expect an electric stage show and a timely call for togetherness and solidarity. But most of all, expect to experience the kora as you never have before. And to dance.

Wizard Of Oz

 

Elefest-Alabama

Notable for its use of glorious Technicolor, fantasy story-telling, Academy award-winning songs, and charming characters, the Wizard of Oz is considered to be one of the greatest films in popular culture. Based on the popular L. Frank Baum stories, Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado’s path and are dropped unceremoniously into the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart, and courage.
