The first night and greeted on to the Lagos island of Ibasa under a full moon. Welcomed so generously by Ojo and Tobi, in to their city, their island, their home.
They are members of the band Eko Samba (Eko meaning Lagos) and Ojo is Project Co-Ordinator and Tobi is assistant Musical Director. I’m kicking off my time in West Africa playing with the band, having met them through Seyi who I met at Notting Hill. Completely humbled by their kindness so far.
Time for some rest before getting the musical geek on from tomorrow.
