Invitation Balafonmeeting 2017:

A balafon meeting will be held at Factorium Tilburg on Sunday 27 August. Anyone with a thing for this beautiful instrument is welcome to come and listen and participate.
Students of balafonist Paul Nas will give various presentations and perform. There will also be two bands playing in which the balafon has a place. You can actively get to know the instrument and take part in a workshop for beginners. (Do sign up in advance!). The afternoon will end with a joint performance with more than 30 balaphones (students and beginners together). This will improve the unofficial world record for balafon playing in a playful way. The Balafon meeting is organised by Paul Nas in cooperation with Factorium Tilburg. Entrance is free.
