Michael Barrett: " I am so excited to come to beautiful Ghent to share traditional South African song and dance with you. Traditional music from my country is so uplifting and inspiring to sing, and I am truly excited to show you the "tricks and trades" of singing this music authentically. You will need to bring your voice and your dancing shoes, and if you like to play drums - this will also be a good place for you. Come join me as we make music together, dance and experience the true meaning of "Ubuntu". Hope to see you there ;-) "
