Festival of Highlife...it's in the drums 7 OCT 2021

Abass Dodoo and One-Drum Foundation CIO bring you a Festival of Highlife. Discover ancient African drumming rhythms infused with Jazz and Afrobeat in memory of the legendary Ginger Baker and music from Ginger Baker’s Jazz Confusion. Sit back and enjoy the creativity and artistry of next-gen Master African Drummers and young musicians influenced by Ginger Baker’s afro-jazz polyrhythmic innovation. Join Abass and Friends of Ginger Baker, as they celebrate Ginger Bakers’ love of African drumming and the Highlife.

The One-Drum Foundation, a UK registered charity, jointly founded by Ginger and Abass represents British African master drummers, dancers, musicians, and performers. Its charitable objectives are to advance the education of the public in the arts, history, and culture of African music through community workshops and performances.

‘African drumming is the beat of the heart, the pulse of the blood and the rhythm of life. A celebration of the spirit as old as humankind’
