Sorry Mwalimu Massive

but Rich Mix have let us know that it will be a while yet before they open their doors to the public again, in this season of Covid-19.

We will continue to assess the situation and will let you know if anything changes.

Hope you are all well and taking care of yourselves.

 

How are you all doing? It's been way too long. We thought we would be over this pandemic by now but not looking likely. We have to start learning to live with it so let's get busy! While we look forward to awesome real live music, dance, street food and playing oware at Mwalimu Express, here are a few fab things to listen to and even go to (online)
 
Our much-loved OWARE SOCIETY continues to do the do in wondrous fashion. They are holding sessions and tournaments and all sorts of
delightful things related to this fabulous African game.
 
Fiston Lusambo Online Video Jam Sessions:
Leader of Congolese outfit the Zong Zing Allstars Fiston Lusambo is a super talented guitarist and arranger is hosting free weekly music workshops for people with disabilities & their families & carers.
 
Then there is the Walthamstow Garden Party packed program check out the `Ascending Rhythms' with Mbilla Arts.
https://www.walthamstowgardenparty.com/
 
Rendez-vous a Bobo with Lucas keen - fab drummer with Seby Ntege and a host of other bands has revived his podcast Rendez-vous a Bobo which explores African musical instrument
 
How we miss Tony Allen, who sadly left us on the 30/04/20. Lucky for us the co-creator of Afrobeat and the funkiest drummer ever left behind an awesome legacy of work. Have a revel in some of his awesome music while you listen to Max's tribute on his Morley Radio show featuring the awesome Afrobeat maestro and Mwalimu Express fav the Afrobeat maestro, DELE SOSIMI and me.
We miss TY, a huge-hearted inspirational human, who will be crowned in time as one of the pioneering greats of UK/Nigerian rap. Our close compadre sadly passed on 07/05/20, aged only 47. Here’s a brief tribute
from Max’s Late Lunch Show on Soho Radio
 
Both these amazing artists were cherished performers
with our Shrine Synchro System. Rest In Power
