Last Saturday there was a very special gig at the Centre with stunning live African music and non stop dancing. It was in fact a 60th birthday party for my good wife Karen, Chairperson of the centre's management committee, fan of African sounds and lover of dancing . Invited guests were treated to a night of irresistible Zimbabwean rhythms from London-based band Harare. Judging by the reception the band received there is certainly an appetite in Knighton for more dance-orientated World Music and we certainly hope that the Comm will see more gigs like this in the year ahead.
Harare feature ex-Bhundu Boy Kudaushe Matimba and are shown here on the Comm's temporary stage, which puts the band up close to the dancing and creates a warm atmosphere - even on a frosty December night!
