If you can't make the Saturday gig, there's another one on Sunday!!! Check it out:

For those who are unaware of the motivation behind this gathering, we are in the throngs of organising a musical aid mission for Vanuatu called the Vanuatu Music Revival Project, collecting people's guitars and ukuleles that are lying gathering dust around their homes and sending them via sailing yachts (with the Drifting Circus) into the hands of people on the islands of Vanuatu who lost all their instruments in cyclone PAM.

As the project has really picked up momentum, I've decided to make a documentary about the voyage and showing how important music is to these communities, how it unites people of different cultures and can be an incredible healing tool after such a disaster..... as you can imagine the Drifting Circus (who some of you may have met at Prana) are going to jam with the locals when they deliver the instruments and bring a lot of smiles to the islands, sharing their art and discovering more along the way.

See the webpage for more info and get in touch if you'd like to help out in any way!
