Event description

Description

AFROFEST is an African festival which aims at showcasing the beauty of African heritage and culture in Toronto.

In 2018, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of AFROFEST Toronto and the 20th anniversary of the African Drum and Art Crafts store located on 618 Bathurst St - Toronto. To commemorate this milestone we have partnered and will attempt to create the largest djembe drum ensemble at AFROFEST 2018. The event will take place on July 08, 2018 - 9:00am - 12:00pm.

This event is open to everyone: every race, nationality, background, drumming level (amateurs, experts, those who have never touched a djembe, those who sleep with a djembe under their pillow) We welcome everyone to come and share this event with us. "Come one come all".

You can register if you do not have a djembe drum - donations will go towards securing drums for all participants.

We are attempting 2 records:

1. Creating the largest djembe drum ensemble.

2. Most nationalities playing the djembe drum simultaneously.

While registration will help us be organized, the donations will go towards:

- Paying for the presence of a Guinness representative, securing djembes for drummers, equipment rental, transportation of equipment and security.

We are hoping to sign 1,500 drummers and also raise $30,000 through registration.

Thanks for your continuous support.
