On Saturday 20 October, the Centre for Fine Arts will be turning itself into CongoBOZARville. On the bill are "diamonds" of the Congolese contemporary music scene, with the focus on Congotronic groups (produced by Crammed Discs) and artists from the Yambi festival. We also are happy to welcome Werrason, the most popular artist from Central Africa, on stage. Starting at 2pm, and continuing into the early hours, there will be a succession of concerts, workshops, talks, films and dance shows. Traditional music will combine with modern sounds to offer some surprising blends of styles!

14:00 > 19:30 Collection of instruments for Kinshasa
