Description

A musical journey from moonlit nights in the villages of West Africa to urban highlife dance classics. The Nigerian Brothers open with the gentle harmonic and rhythmic traditional folk music followed by The West African Highlife Band reviving the ‘highlife’ dance classics, with a fusion of African and world music. Rich vocals, intertwining guitars, and exciting percussion make this group unbeatable!

Picnics are encouraged and there is an outdoor playground for kids and an art room.
