So I’m going to drum camp tomorrow. Four days of excellent African percussion, music and dance from around the world. I’ve been going to this for a little over ten years now and every year I’m amazed at the truly world class talent that appears in a marquee in a field in Suffolk. Musicians come from all over and they put Drum Camp on their tour itinerary just to be there.

There’s workshops on drum, dance and song from all sorts of cultures. I don’t tend to do many workshops as they are often waaay too early in the morning and I really there go to chill. The evenings are where its at, that and the drinking and the occasional falling over.
