An upbeat, fun piece which exudes positive-vibes from the outset. This original composition by Darrol Barry for brass band is a great addition to concert repertoire. A nice balance of strong rhythm, touches of featured obligato and a catchy melody.
Darrol Barry composed this work in support of a charitable project, known in 2005 as Brass Band Aid. The organisation called for original compositions to be included in a follow-up CD release – Into Africa to help raise funds for projects in Adet, Africa, and to build awareness of the Make Poverty History campaign. African Adventure was featured on the CD with a recording by the Black Dyke Band.
Now that the original BBA projects are complete, funds raised by the titles we publish from the Brass Band Aid series continue to support other music-related projects on a regular basis.
