A family afternoon featuring the songs of I. K. Dairo, the father of juju music and one of Africa's first international music stars. Come and enjoy the wisdom and philosophy of I.K. Dairo music. Songs which he once said, “often came to him at night, in dreams, borne upon the wind and the wings of angels."
I.K Dairo is the only African Musician to have received the honour of Member of The British Empire (MBE). In commemorating 55 years since I.K. Dairo’s receipt of this honour, this workshop traces his life and works. Starting from 1957 when he created the ‘Morning Orchestra’ until his membership of the Ethnomusicology department at the University of Washington, Seattle.
As part of St Albans Arts Team's 'Squatlife' project, acclaimed theatre company Cardboard Citizens, the UK's leading practitioners in Forum Theatre, will be sharing some of their skills and methodology in two introductory sessions.
