Bring your own drum or percussion instruments to join the drumming. From 13.30, Ladies of Midnight Blue will perform in BALTIC’s Ground Floor gallery. Ladies of Midnight Blue is an Afro-Latin percussion & brass duet comprised of Hannabiell Sanders (Bass Trombone, African & Latin Percussion and Composer) and Yilis del Carmen Suriel (African & Latin Percussion).
