Baka BeyondAs we drove to Ipswich last night the roads were covered with small bits of tree and not surprisingly the sails on the Saxtead mill were turning.  Equally not surprisingly Baka Beyond played compulsively engaging African music with the singers' dancing as intrinsic as the vocals and the drummer (a proper journalist would have got the players' names) using an exotic combination of western and African percussionPeppery said they'd like to return to the near the coast heartland but can't find a venue ... any ideas?

Despite the cutesy name we're confident Baka Beyond will supply the expected Peppery Prods good time tomorrow night in the Manor Ballroom, Ipswich.  (The Baka people live in the rain forests of Cameroon, Congo, Gabon and the Central African Republic, and we still miss you Peppery <sob> at Easton Farm Park.)
