The beat from West Africa

Drummers and dancers from several groups showcased music and dance from West Africa on Sunday evening at Caponi Art Park. A huge crowd and a small swarm of photographers feasted on entertainment in the woods.

  1. I think that I will check the internet to find out what is coming up in that park since you always post fascinating photos from it (and the Tues Market also). Great action photos full of energy.

  2. I can almost hear the music. And I'm still marveling at triplet nieces! I think I'd do a whole Egan photo session with them!
