  Griot Chinyere talking about the spirit of Afrakan storytelling

 

 (please excuse the wind spirit getting in on the act, listen well)

            Previous festival Sesa Wo Suban: Transform your life

Griot Chinyere started the festival in 2009 to bring together the African community in a natural environment.

 

When we all unite in a positive creative space, healing, emporwering energy is created and the benefits can undoubtedly be felt. 'Transform your life'  is a positive affirmation that provokes the thoughts of what one needs, to be their best self as an indiviual and as part of the community. 

 

Some of Britain's finest storytellers, musicians and poets have blessed this festival with their presence during the all through the night festival, which was programmed based on a similar ritual in Ghana, from dusk till dawn storytelling around the fire with the whole village there! See video above!

 

Stay tuned for more details on the 4th annnual Afrakan storytelling festival now named Nne Agwu!
