Thank You to Everyone…….

……who made the Rhythms of the World residential and Tinto Africa concert such a huge success.

This is the kind of event we have dreamed of hosting at Wiston Lodge since Tinto Music and Arts was incorporated back in the summer of this year 2014.

We had a wonderful series of drumming workshops led by our very own Paul John Dear of Rhythmbridge connecting  a wide variety of learner levels and to create some very hot grooves. The place was bouncing all weekend.

The Saturday concert was everything we could have hoped for with World Class Music and Dance on offer.
