Afrikaba 2010 *

AfricaUnite_Sekou2010 marked the launch of this brand new festival delivering the official Black History Month celebrations in Hastings.

Afrikaba 2010 featured Kora master, Seckou Keita with Sakama Live Show Band.

This musical collaboration between Brighton based Tanzanian band Sakama and West African Kora Maestro Seckou Keita is led by Sakama bandleader David Sijale. Sakama’s high energy dance music and majestic acrobatics, merge brilliantly with Seckou Keita’s charismatic Kora playing to produce some of the most unique combinations of East African percussion, Congolese High Pitch Guitars and West African Kora melodies.
