Every Wednesday we screen a selection of fantastic short films made by filmmakers from Waltham Forest and beyond, all genres including animation.
This week we have a film introduction to Mbilla Arts | Online BHM Performance
Mbilla Arts is a Walthamstow-based social enterprise established in 2006 to promote education and performance programmes in West African music, dance and storytelling. Led by Mbilla Arts’ musical director, Seneke Sillah, the artists are performing music and dance from the Malinke tradition of West Africa. Malinke, also called Maninka, Mandinka, Mandingo, or Manding, are a West African people occupying parts of Guinea, Mali, Ivory Coast, Senegal, The Gambia, and Guinea-Bissau.
Film made by O’Kody Arts – an arts platform focusing on production, education and wellbeing.
