I am really looking forward to this. I am grateful to Sisters of Reggae for the hook UP!! I will be playing a feisty Vinyl set with Reggae and African sounds to the fore. The whole festival looks to be marvellous with a host of wellbeing events from breath meditation to gong healing to organic skin care and DJS galore including me and Shumba Youth and wonderful music from Ayanna Witter Johnson . What a treat. It is crucial to register as entry to each slot is by password.

I seem to be being a DJ as much as anything these days! And got radio very much on my radar still as well. I am currently doing a lot of editing to bring the myriad of interviews that I did in the Gambia in January up to listening quality to do them justice and also to share with the interviewees. I am going there shortly and want to represent well. I have also been invited to take part in a wonderful event organised by WAPPY on November 30th at Ealing Library from 1.30pm
Ella the Great is so much in demand on the Cabaret Circuit it's so exciting ... great things in store in some of the finest lineUP!!s With her King - Richard Melanin the Third and the wonderful Baboushka
Richard Melanin The Third is an all-mighty king and gentle Clown, tip-toeing from the circus ring into drag king territory.. no two encounters are the same. With Quick wit and lasting charm.

SO a swift UP!!D8 as we race on through the summer - currently in glorious sunshine here in London.
Here is the link to the latest edition of The Outerglobe where I interviewed NYC based global activist and musician Drea Pizziconi about her music, aims and CAMFED - Campaign for Female Education - and why girls. I promised you details as to how to get hold of Drea Pizziconi's superb single 'Let Us Dance' and give links to the CAMFED site as well. You are in luck! Here is Drea's website and here is the iTunes link for now You can also find it on other platforms via Drea's site. AND the link for CAMFED is here Donating is simple and the site very self explanatory and transparent.
Camfed is an international non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 1993 whose mission is to eradicate poverty in Africa through the education of girls and the empowerment of young women. Camfed programs operate in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, Tanzania and Malawi
