Southburgh Festival of World Music (Again!)

Seems my blog is all about Anna Mudeka's festival.   However, this is one of the nicest festivals I have ever been to.... This year is the first year Anna is hosting campers, extending the entertainment and workshops over three days. How exciting!


In a quiet corner of Norfolk, music, food, workshops and happiness will come together for an amazing 3 days from the 26th to 28th July. Our main aim is to raise money for The Mudeka Foundation whilst creating community cohesion in rural Norfolk and providing a platform for young and emerging talent across many genres and cultures.

Southburgh Festival 2013 is going to be a rich mix of culture from across the world with main headline already confirmed. Kanda Bongo Man will be making his first appearance in Norfolk with his 8 piece band. The Congolese singer is known as the man who single handedly put kwassa kwassa music on the world map. His shows are dazzling, joyous and mesmerising. Joining him on stage will be The Turbans and The Vagaband with many more still to be announced.

Claudia Aurora on Tour Autumn 2012

Claudia is on tour again in September and October...“Porto-born singer/songwriter Claudia Aurora enraptures with the spine-tingling emotion of her powerful, mournful Fado torch songs. Her extraordinary voice, drenched in a sadness that courses through the audience, gives the soaring sound of Portugal unique dramatic expression.” (St. George’s Bristol)

Last few remaining dates are yet to be booked, Arts La'Olam is hoping for gigs .. call 07990 802 776 for promoter details.

Southburgh Music Festival

It doesn’t seem that long ago last festival when we were dancing the night away to Kasai Masai and Jugnu Bhangra.
Everyone left the site on a high blessed by Kasai Masai, even Anna Mudeka's 3 year old daughter was singing their name for weeks afterwards.
This year they festival team has another fantastic line up for you with main headline Murphy’s Lore playing some great Irish tunes and Kaago from Ivory Coast doing some African drumming, dancing and acrobatics which has to be seen to be believed. To top it off, the Anna Mudeka band are back again with a great new line up and songs.

You will be able to try your hand at Japanese Taiko drumming or Egyptian dance, African dance and for the children there is Garlic Theatre performing the three Billy Goats Graff. There'll be some new stalls added to the popular ones which have been there over the past two years.
Jan’s Rotti and the Black Farmer offer food and this year they will be joined by Pela who will be making some Zimbabwean food and the Rose of India will have an Indian Buffet for the evening yum yum.
