On Saturday Sligo ensemble Slí na Croí will be performing two acoustic sessions of traditional drumming music from the villages of Upper Guinea West Africa. This rich , pacey mix of percussion is infectious, as is the feeling to move.

Sunday night, Sligo ensemble Slí na Croí bring their stage set to Kildare town. After a busy festival tour in 2019 including EP, BodynSoul, Battle for the Lake and Livestock Slí na Croí are here to bring the beat of Upper Guinea to the streets of Cill Dara.

Expect raw village style percussion, dance and song, expect a high energy set and expect to feel like shaking your bones!

Slí na Croí can offer drumming and/or dance workshops for adults or for kids as well as fete style performances. The workshops are open level which means no previous drumming experience is necessary to take part. All the instruments will be provided. The drumming is very accessible and quite often people surprise themselves as to how much so. Expect lots of laughs, high energy and a great opportunity to connect through vibration!
