Africa Junction is a seven piece band featuring members from Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Sicily. Performing traditional West African rhythms played on African drums (dun-dun and djembe) plus other authentic instruments, they add to the mix a bit of guitar and a taste of European melody. Including song and dance, on stage they deliver vibrant, energetic sets ranging between 15 and 90 minutes at festivals, shows, parties, fundraising, community and corporate events. Based around the High Wycombe area, Africa Junction has members who have played over the years with different groups such as Vitae, Drumweaver, Crooked Sixpence, Secret Bass, Hartbeats Vitae Drummers, Jambo Sana and Vibrazioni di Pace. They all learn their music, songs and dances directly from West African master drummers and teachers here in the UK, and on various study trips to Africa. Among these are Seckou Keita, Iya Sako, Nansady Keita, Ibro Konate, Bolo Kada Konde, Bruno Genero, Landing Mane and grandmaster of West African Drumming, Mamady Keita. They also work with some fantastic European teachers of African Dance such as Sonja Toure, Emma Nelson and Saskia Bakayoko.
