Song Safari to Gambia !
1-14 January, 2023
Come join us for a truly wonderful start of the year 2023!
On the shores of the warm Atlantic Ocean we´ll dance and drum under the tutorage of skilled local masters. And in the evenings we gather at Dabo House to sing our hearts out under the stars and the leadership of Anders. We'll sing songs that bind us together and connect us with ourselves, our roots and our purpose.
