Aylesbury Whizzfizzing Festival (July 1st)

 
Like every year in the beginning of July, this Saturday morning Aylesbury was again flourishing in colours, music and energy. Traditionally a Roald Dahl festival renamed itself into the Whizzfizzing festival this year, and the whizz and the fizz were bursting out of every pore of this lovely town. The theme was »Fantastical creatures«, so Sol Samba put on our best horns and our dragonly dancers led the 30+ groups parade through the town centre. In the main square, we later danced to the rhythms of the always fantastic Toque Tambor, as well as to the catchy sounds of the Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, an amazing band that had flown in from Rajasthan specifically for this event.

 
 

 
The parade started at the Temple Street …
 

… and continued through the centre of town (you can hear us singing Princesa Dona Emilia, one of the band’s favourites):
 

 
We couldn’t resist dancing to the infectious rhythms of the Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band:
 

 

A dragon-ish ROAR to everyone who was in Aylesbury!
