Traditional West African live shows at Festival Rare Talents 2016

Traditional West African Music

First of all, I managed to catch two performances of Traditional West African music bands at Festival Rare Talents.

Secondly, it was the festival’s closing performances on Saturday 28th May 2016 in Montreuil (Paris). I’m glad I didn’t miss them! I truly enjoyed the performances!
