[mixcloud http://www.mixcloud.com/LAPKAT/lapin-et-lion-lapkat-live-mix/ width=660 height=360 /] Recorded at Fete la Frog, in Northcote, Melbourne, on a sunny autumn day ... A set of favourites, focus on Africa, not necessarily new – you'll notice Akua Naru and Sista Fa from previous sets and also some tracks from recent 'La Danza Poetica' - great tracks not denied indulgence! Spoken word and poetry in French from Africa, France, Nederlands, Canada, Australia. For both the rabbit and the lion – the lion may be fierce but the rabbit has fierce skill!
Don't dance? Yes, you do dance. "Who are you not to be fabulous?" ( .m. & .R. )
