Round the Bays 2020

An early start to a fun-filled morning

We were invited to perform at the Round the Bays event (for the Fiji Airways Corporate Zone), entertaining the runners as they race past. Our drummers and dancers performed from 7:45am to 9:30 am – playing off and on for runner groups passing by.

That’s one early start – especially for a high-energy activity like samba. Ditto for the high-energy activity of running – what a challenge!

Anyway – it turned out to be a lovely morning, with lots of drumming and dancing and a great crowd of enthusiastic runners and walkers streaming by, giving us a wave and a cheer as they zoomed past.
