Africa Day: Ghanaian drum and dance
Posted By: rparmar, 05-24-2009, 04:18 PM

It poured rain all day but that did not stop people from celebrating at Africa Day last Sunday, 17 May in Limerick, Ireland. With food, dance, music art and a great buzz this was a fantastic time! Sponsored by Irish Aid.

These shots are from just one of the acts, a Ghanaian drum and dance circle. This was my favourite groove of the festival.

Shot with the FA43 and FA77.

Officially Limerick is only about 90,000 but there are lots of regions around that feed into the city. So I think realistically the number is double. Still a small place. That's why an event like this is even more welcome.

Robin, great series! Love the first two especially, see the joy in the guy's face in background of the first photo for example!

Oh yeah, I love that one too. The woman is dancing slowly in her own world, the drummer in the foreground has stood up and looks intent on something, while the dude in the back goes wild!

Thanks for all the comments.
