The Asha Drummers performed to a very appreciative crowd at the Alsager One World Fair on Saturday 5th October. The drummers come from a number of African nations; Godefroid from Rwanda, Keita from Guinea, Guigui from Ivory Coast, Tamba from Sierre Leone and Bertrand from Cameroon.
The group, lead by Keita, mainly performed West African drumming and they were supported superbly by Pauline who lead the dancing. She was amazing! Her energy and enthusiasm encouraged many people in the audience to join her and for fifteen minutes the atmosphere in the hall was electric as people responded enthusiastically and danced to the fantastic sound of the drums.
The drummers were joined by a group of parents and children who came from Asha to support the event and who really enjoyed being part of such a happy occasion.
The performance was a great success and Kathryn, one of the organisers, said, ‘The drummers were really fabulous and were the highlight of the morning!’
