Anne Wafula Strike blogs on the Gala Event16th March
We were very luck and honoured to have Anne Wafula Strike, British paralympic athlete, attend the Gala event and share a few inspirational words.
”The film, ‘Benda Bilili!’, is truly a fantastic statement about overcoming adversity against all the odds. To then see the band come to life on stage and produce music that was so hot it set the roof on fire, was an electrifying experience”
