For the 12th edition of BASS, we launched our 2017 THIS IS AFRICA programme with a launch event at the Afro Caribbean Millennium Centre, Birmingham.
BASS2017 features visual arts, education, debate, stand up comedy, music and much more in a holistic celebration of the Arts, Culture and Heritage of Africa and artists of African heritage.
The CEO of Punch Records, producers of BASS gave a speech about the history of the Festival, how we decided on our theme for the year and some of this year’s highlights; Eddie Kadi, The Back To Africa Roots Tour and My Africa Art Exhibition.
Birmingham based Gambimi performed 2 tracks ‘Waters’ and ‘My Party’ to give a flavour of what’s to come throughout November for BASS2017.
Gambimi will also be performing at the first event of this year’s programme Africa Unite which promises to be a showcase of New Africa.
