Monday 3rd September 2007. Mankala playing at Temple Quay Square
This event was the last of a series of Summer
Lunchtime Concerts organised by the Managing Agents of Temple Quay. The weather looked promising
and it stayed alternately sunny / cloud for the duration of the gig.
Mankala's Myspace site is HERE if you've come to this page direct, where you can hear
some of their music.
Left to right are ... Simwinji ... Omer ... Jason ... Sol ... Chris.
Omer's son Tai was sat around close to the band, sometimes dancing, and it was
obvious that he wanted to be part of the band, so he got his opportunity towards
the end of the session as they did a percussion number.
See Mankala's website at
www.mankala.co.uk for more info.
Most people wanted to sit and chill to Mankala's sounds, while tucking into
their lunchtime snacks, but their infectious rhythms inevitably got some
people up and dancing.

come out to listen during their lunch-breaks. If you don't know where Temple
Quay Square is, there is a link to a location map at the top of this page.
