The third day of the festival celebrating the Galway stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race had Oleku Band playing in The Topaz Main Stage. I headed down there to check it out, although I wasn’t expecting much, because it was a quite cold (and almost raining) Monday.
But what I saw left me positively surprised. There were actually quite a lot of people outside, and the majority was actually dancing to the African rythms presented by the Nigerian band. Near the end of the performance a few of the audience members started dancing Capoeira which rapidly gathered a big crowd around them. Fun stuff.
Here are two movies I recorded of the Oleku Band performance (no video of the Capoeira session because there wasn’t enough light):
