First Impressions.

Was a vibe! I’ll admit, I was sold on the east African art & photography on exhibit but I was excited as soon as I learned that TribeDiaspore were putting this event on. Especially after the success of their last two, Tales from the Tribes, a brunch which took place at Ikoyi London and Sounds from the Tribes a jam session of poetry and music hosted at Busta Mantis, SE1.

A perfect fit.

This time the theme was focused on exploring east Africa through art from Vintage Addis Ababa as well as a complimentary tasting of authentically brewed Ethiopian coffee by Habesha Village. People also enjoyed Nigerian style tapas while they watched a South African Comedy Film. I personally LOVED the milo donuts – can you say yum!- made by SauceIt. The sun was out and the good weather kept the vibes flowing all the way outside where people played – and learned for the first time – traditional west African games and beautifully detailed dresses and scarves also made by Habesha Village were available to buy.


Things started to wind down around 7 pm, giving just enough time for everyone to go home and prepare for Monday. I certainly can’t wait for the next one and I am secretly hoping T-shirts worn by the tribeDiaspore team will be available to buy soon!
