SOUTH SOCIAL CELEBRATES BLACK CULTURE
2-3 February 2019 Theatre Peckham
Our Black Culture weekend was enriched with both music and dancing. Elsa Perez the 83 year old South-African Londoner kicked off the weekend with a Riel dance group and workshop along with a jewelry stall, adding a touch of Cape Town to Theatre Peckham. Acclaimed Cameroonian musician Munto Valdo then had us singing along to his ’Sawa Blues’, performing his iconic songs featuring a mix of American soul and Brazilian samba. Valdo’s use of the harmonica, guitar and vocals creates a captivating mixture of folk and blues, with the essence of his African roots. Munto Valdo www.muntovaldo.co.uk
