African Music Guided Walk - 7th June

A four mile walk across some of the Marsden Moor Estate had a difference as we were joined by Simba Arts, who came along with African dress, drums and their dancing feet on. The walk was accompanied by the music and singing, with everyone joining in and getting dressed up.

All along the walk there were the sounds of drums beating and people singing. There were frequent stops to learn about African culture and traditions, as well as for dancing and music. Everyone joined in with everyone dancing with each other. Walkers coming across the affair seemed to be intrigued and amused by the unusual happenings in Marsden.

It was a very enjoyable afternoon out in the moors as it was such an unusual experience.
