Hackney based carnival arts charity Tropical Isles and Play Nice London are teaming up this Tuesday August 13th to bring you an evening of carnival themed workshops at the Rose Lipman Centre. Joelle Fontaine of At Your Beat Dance Studio will be showing you how to whine up your waist in a dance workshop, and Winifred from Tropical Isles will be teaching you how to make your own headdress or wristband in a costume making workshop. Workshops will be followed by drinks and DJs (we may even spin some tunes!).
The event runs from 7-10pm and workshops are pay what you can; advance tickets here, donations are also welcome on the night. As funding for Notting Hill Carnival continues to be cut, proceeds will help support the local community to get on the road and participate at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival.
Probably one of our fave producers in the world Heavy K is back with another single from his lp last year. This time he is joined by Soulstar on another Mzansi house jam. I can’t wait for others to reach out and start working with this genius.
Chi Ching Ching is bringing more moves than Ding Dong and Elephant Man put together these days. Watchi Wiya is the latest in his string of dance related hits and like Way Up Stay Up the dance is pretty easy to do. Get involved!
