We have some bad news. Due to too few timely registrations we have decided to cancel the upcoming edition of the Tuka Tuka Weekend. The accommodation, teachers, crew and people who did register have been informed.
We would like to thank our Tuka family for all your wonderful reactions and attempts to promote our event. You are fantastic! Hopefully we be back the year and therefore we will close of for now by saying…
It is that time of the year again: Tuka Tuka Weekend is open for registration! It will be the 19th time already! Of course we have some surprises this year. From exotic Manchester we will be flying in Sidiki Dembélé to teach the far advanced Djembe group. He can’t wait! The dance classes will be even more energetic this year, cos we are adding a whole lot doundouns to the equation. This doundoundance (say a 100 times at top speed) workshop will be taught by Serge Badoué, who is warming up as we speak, psyched as he is about this. Furthermore, we are very happy to be able to re-welcome Oké Sène and Eef Bresser as our Djembe advanced and Djembe beginners and slightly advanced teachers. Paulus Kock will again prepare a top band for the big stage during his Afropop workshop and Joris Feuillatre will bring advanced ngoni players to greater heights.
We haven’t been able to maintain the same price this year. Our beloved government has seen fit to raise VAT on food and accommodation significantly, which results in seriously higher costs for us. We have been able to mitigate the price rise for you, but a bit extra couldn’t be avoided, unfortunately.
It is that time of the year again… behind the scenes we are preparing like mad for the next Tuka Tuka Weekend. More information will follow soon, but we can already safely say that it will amazing. Which is probably not a surprise, since Tuka Tuka has never failed to disappoint. 🙂 More information will follow soon!
We again had a blast! Thank you all, teachers, visitors and of course our wonderful crew for making this another memorable weekend…
Samba has unfortunately been cancelled. In the other workshops there are still some spaces.
And we’re off! Tuka Tuka 2018 is open for registration…
Brilliant news… Joris will be conducting the Ngoni workshops again in 2018!
