I’m a Roma child I was born to roam I’m Roma baby this world’s my home I travel through the cities I travel through the streets Not much money in my pocket Just the shoes on my feet

FUSION with Rafiki and Kamosi

FUSION was an evening of Afro- Roma- Eastern young vibes that took place at the Turnpike Centre, in Leigh on 16th May 2012.

From  March to May 2012 both Rafiki and  Kamosi groups  from Wigan and Leigh, developed a new cross media performance event which featured live music and Rap, spoken word, digital art , Street and Roma dance,  underscored with a strong  Afro – Roma Hip Hop vibe. This was a reflective, humorous, joyful and for audiences,  greatly enjoyable  event.

The groups went on to perform their work as part of  the Truth About Youth Festival at the Royal Exchange in July 2012.
