Hannabiel and Yillis plus their accompanying friends created a drum circle and certainly put on a great show on Sunday 5th August 2018 for the raising of Lubaina Himid’s flag on top of the Baltic at Gateshead quayside, part of the Great Exhibition of the North 2018.
This was always going to be a good performance due to the nature of the vibe created by these ladies. Also, I am a bit biased as I am a drummer myself. But honestly, the carnival atmosphere, helped by the glorious sunshine once again, that they brought to the quayside was, in my opinion, unmatched by any of the other Sunday morning performances so far, although they have all been very good in their own right.
With only 5 more Sunday’s left to go, the bar has been raised to a very high level and I think it will be very difficult to beat this great performance, although there are some great acts coming up, including Beat This, who I am sure will be giving the Ladies of Midnight Blue a run for their money.
Who’s been your favourite so far and what made you choose that performance? Let me know in the comments section.
