I feel like at home and I am happy that I have got acquainted with culture of these people closer’ – Saleh Attah said, one of drummer-visitors. By the way, a few Brazilian motives also became part of the festival. The purpose of this action was to strengthen national unity of Nigerians.


I love these grand festivals, they are forced to believe the best, believe in the prosperity of the country. After going to so many talented people, expansions that are able to play the drums, I would of course also like to pouchavstvovat in this festival, but yet do not know how to play the drums. It is nice that so many people are not indifferent to such events, it is very good that there is a desire for something. After all, many people simply do not want to go to these festivals, not to mention the fact that we should still play the drums. We follow the news.
