01 Jul Balafonmeeting 2017
On Sunday 27 August 2017 a balafonmeeting will be held in the Factorium Tilburg. Anyone who has something with this beautiful instrument is welcome to come and listen.
Pupils from balafonist Paul Nas will give different presentations and performances. There are also two bands in which the Balafon has a place. You can actively get acquainted with the instrument and participate in a workshop for beginners. (Do give in advance!). The afternoon ends with a joint performance with more than 30 balafons (students and beginners together). This will improve the unofficial World Record Balafon play. The Balafonmeeting is organized by Paul Nas in collaboration with the Tilburg Factorium. Entrance is free.
