City Boom Boom is thrilled to announce our 2 week trip to Abene, Senegal in January 2017! *there is also the option to travel for three weeks

Last year’s workshops in Senegal proved to be the biggest and best experience for our group and we still remember our time together with real joy! Every trip to Africa ends with the same symptom : an honest, unforced need to return as soon as possible :) So, we’re going there again in January 2017!! And we’ll be offering an even more extraordinary series of workshops – music and dance with some of the greatest masters of Mandingue.

ATTENTION – the optional WEEK THREE is vacation time only. There will be no workshops organised.
