One Voice Music & Bombo Productions is delighted to announce Camp Iroko 2020.
Coronavirus restrictions permitting, we hope to go ahead with our camp this year. We have made several adjustments to our payment method to try and accommodate those under economic pressure because of the current situation. We have reduced our deposit by 50% (fully refundable if lockdown restrictions persist), provided an option to pay in instalments and not put prices up from last year. (See full details below) .
Camp Iroko is a five-day Afro-Cuban folkloric drum camp in Wymondley Woods in Hertfordshire. This all-inclusive event boasts a 20-acre conservation area with mature woods, stream, pond, grassland and open fire pit. We have camping and indoor accommodation with access and facilities for the disabled.
The topics include Cuban rumba, Bata, Bembe, Guiro, Iyesa & Congo plus songs for all these traditions.
We have adjusted our payment options to accommodate the increased financial pressure on people brought about by the coronavirus. All payments will be fully refundable if lockdown continues or is lifted and then reinstated at a time which coincides with the event.
