Zinda Festival has begun.

The week-long celebration of multicultural music, food and art kicked off yesterday with a cushion concert by musician Jali Buba Kuyateh.

He entertained youngsters at the Capital Theatre in an environment that offers children the opportunity to move around or even ask questions of the performer. Jali Buba just took it all in his stride.
