A SHORT WALK THROUGH AFRICA
Music and dance play an important role in African societies. In fact, it is an integral part of their daily lives. People dance, sing and play music at birth, adulthood, weddings, harvest, even in death. The show «A SHORT WALK THROUGH AFRICA» is a musical wandering from the West to South Africa, narrating the beauty and dreams of its people.
