Coventry's audiences should expect a unique experience on Thurs 10 May, their performance will fuse irresistible rhythm with perfectly synchronised movement and stunning costumes in one incredible event.


You'll hear thunderous vibrations from the huge Odalko drum, set off by the delicate sound of bamboo flutes and soulful vocals in layered and percussive soundscapes. Meanwhile, the artists are dressed in diverse costumes ranging from edgy industrial outfits to gorgeous, earthy skills that are combined with innovative dance moves. You will not want to miss this visual feast during its performance at Belgrade Theatre.
