warming up


Went to see these people here last night.  The perfect venue for Cuban music.  They got several standing ovations for their soulful singing and rhythms and dance.  It didn't matter that we didn't understand the words because it spoke to the soul and made me want to wear bright colours and dance.  Well, at least I can wear my orange cardigan when I'm sitting in the Women's Library today.

You can see the choir on Jools Holland tonight.

Wonderful - thanks so much for posting. Yes, I would want to get up and dance to that. You can hear the ancestral echoes of Africa in every phrase.

That sounds wonderful - and I've heard that the hall is magnificent too. Glad you had fun!

Just the phrase 'music hall' makes me want to go! I've just bought a yellow cardi for summer. It feels very daring for some reason.

That sounds very cheerful and great fun...love the idea of an orange cardi :)

Saw them on TV. Brilliant.
I'm afraid orange is a step too far for me.
