African Funk


The work was created in response to a charitable CD fund-raising project, and the recording by the Black Dyke Band was featured on the final CD – Into Africa.

A fun, upbeat number, playable by all levels and offering a wealth of percussion opportunities for the whole band!

Alan Fernie 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 Nova Scotia International Tattoo Brass 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.
