Ok itâ€™s now getting exciting â€“ the 4th edition of the Briks-tone Fiesta in Brikama Town is having one of the best lineups weâ€™ve ever seen at a Gambian festival. The event, held annually, will take place at the Brikama Boxba mini stadium on the eve of Independence Day (17th February, 2013).
The founder and organiser of the festival, Marshal Telisman (Pa Sanyang) told Whatâ€™s On-Gambia that more than 16 artists are now confirmed.
Afro Manding singer, Bro K (Atirinkah) is one of the artists that will take the stage at Boxba, as well as Kora music star Pa Bobo Jobarteh plus veteran rapper Mo Hawk, Senegalese star Fafadi, Jamaican reggae singer Tenza, Brikamaâ€™s own ST and One Strike Bullet just to name a few!
In a chat with Briks-Tone Fiestaâ€™s Ground Coordinator, Alieu Darboe the festival is out not only to provide entertainment and promote unity but also to raise money for the Brikama Health Centre.
â€œSince we started, weâ€™ve been giving to the health center and our support is recognized and praised by the people of the town.â€
