Back in 2012, Zi’oka has had the privilege to have Sonia Dersion in one of our rehearsal sessions in Bethnal Green. Sonia Dersion is one of the most beautiful voice of Zouk and it was a pleasure to play and dance with her. If you want to know more about Sonia, check her website here

London Tropical Vibes: Our performance

Posted in Ziloka News with tags , , , , , , on February 10, 2013 by ziloka

Last saturday we put a show together for the London Tropical Vibes event organised by Intercultural Alliance and its president Marc Laguerre.

Our story revolved around Gwoka and what it meant for the people of Guadeloupe. We tried to show the emotions, the social functions connected with the 7 rythmes of this music.
From Boulagel to Mende we expressed joy, sorrow, we showed how the community used those rythmes in their everyday lives. It lasted 25 minutes but for you, we managed to compress it to less than 5 mins in the video below.

Enjoy!
