BACK TO NATURE: And speaking of cultural attractions for next month, the Gungo Walk World Alternative Music & Arts Festival, which enjoyed a solid debut last summer, is set to return to the grounds of the Edna Manley College on August 24, with a similar mix of live music on three stages (acts will include Stephanie, SkyGrass, et al), art and poetry, film, food, a healing village, a kiddies village, and dozens of booths. The day-long festival's key event, Armchair Rebelution, will feature performances by singer Michael Sean Harris and other acts to be announced in due course. The similarities to last year's staging notwithstanding, the production team is aiming to present a bigger, better experience this time around for patrons of all stripes. "Gungo Walk embraces the young, the not-so-young, the different, the alternative, the indigenous, the creative and the expressive," Harris says. "This year's festival builds on that foundation of inclusion and expression."
