Programme

Accommodation

From 8:30 pm on the Friday night you are welcome at De Buitenjan. During the weekend we have the exclusive use of many spaces. There are several living rooms where you can chill and talk  and we have a hall where we will have our party nights (think music, dance, drinks and lots of craic). The hall is located directed next to the monastery and connected to it with a corridor. The first party is on Friday night. So as soon as you have settled in you can come over for a drink.

Workshops

The workshops are on Saturday and Sunday in the mornings and afternoons. What is different this year, is that you can decide per part of the day what you are going to do. You can choose to join a workshop or go play with your fellow Tuka visitors in one of designated areas. Some workshops are on registration only, so make sure you register for these when filling out the registration form.

We have coffee and tea in between and meals are served three times a day on Saturday and two times on Sunday. The food, coffee and tea, as are the drinks at night, are included in the weekend price.

Wanna go for a walk? Not a problem. The accommodation is located in the woods with loads of lovely walking opportunities.

Participants:

No experience is required to participate in the Tuka Tuka Weekend. Actually, Tuka Tuka 2020 is very suitable for those who want to try if they like African music or just want to listen and watch. We have a wide choice available. If asked, please give us an accurate description of your level and experience wherever requested on the registration form so we can place you in the right group.

Levels in the workshops:

During the balafon workshops all levels are in the same group. Differences in experience will be countered by inserting varying challenges.

Instruments:

Please note that instruments are not included in any of the workshops, but can be rented. In some workshops renting instruments is even obligatory. If that’s the case, it will be clearly stated. More information on the Practical info page.
