PROGRAMME

 

 

 

CONCERT BY TÉMÉ TAN

9.30 - 10.30 p.m. - Hall

For this final Art/Africa late night, the artist Témé Tan will take us on a journey. Congolese Témé Tan grew up in both Kinshasa and Brussels. Fascinated by his roots and inspired by his travels, his music captures the rhythms and heat of the Congo, Brazil and Guinea. Blending soul, electro beats and Afro pop, his energetic, heady dance tunes reflect cosmopolitan influences.

INITIATION TO AFRO-JAZZ DANCE

7.00 - 9.00 p.m. - Auditorium
