We went there on recommendation and so glad we did! The music and dance was excellent with locals and a few tourists. Prices are very reasonable, one drink thrown in! Starts late evening and after the show people are still hanging around over drinks.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a

traditional African clothing convene outside their

other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
