What a great night at the New Years Eve Parti Noson Galan @ Neuadd Ogwen Bethesda! Banda Bacana shared the stage with Turnstone and DJ Fflyffilyfbybl, supported by a wonderful Bethesda crowd with their dancing shoes on. Big thanks to Dilwyn and all the staff at Neuadd Ogwen for all their hard work. And a special mention to Jon Lawrence for doing the PA, we’ve had some really good feedback on the sound.
Bringing some West African sunshine to Snowdonia, Debademba are guitarist Abdoulaye Traore and singer Mohamed Diaby. Playing their unique mix of Ethiopian sounds, Afro-funk, African salsa and blues with Spainish and Arabic influence.
The gig will be held at Neuadd Ogwen, Bethesda Supported by DJ Flyffi Lyf Bybl & BandaBacana
We spent a productive weekend in Bryn Derwen Studio in the hands of the talented and lovely John Lawrence. We’ve got 15 rough tracks to play with. Next steps to be decided tonight in practice, but will include additional vocal harmonies, horns, percussion and hopefully some accordian.
Thanks to Cory for taking these fab photos.
