It was a real honor to be a part of the first edition of this fantastic festival! Thank you so much Nunes Da Costa and Carlo Caponnetti for this opportunity :) As a teacher, I would like to thank all the attendees of my Afrohouse class! The energy and vibes were perfect and I hope you went out of the class with a different mindset and some new steps ;) As an attendee, I would like to thank all the artists who provide us new knowledges with joy and smile! Thanks all the Djs for social and partys! Until next time somewhere in the world! #IAmSemba

With great honour I can say I AM (still) SEMBA and I'll keep being and improving! My THANKING goes to Tò Costa ( Nunes Da Costa) and Carlo Caponnetti for the invitation to this unique and magic event! I experienced it in different aspects: - as teacher I had the opportunity to work with great colleagues and Masters which was blissful on one hand and on the other hand the classroom and its sound technicians non-stop working were something very professional - as a student (I never stop learning!) I have to admit: the choice of teachers for this first edition couldn't be otherwise!!! 🔝 - as a client the all-in-one top quality venue with very good fares for Milan, taking in account the ONLY 50m far train station (16min to city centre), high room quality and food were more than simply appreciated I assume behind the organisers there are more hard working people too, so big applause to the whole TEAM! Hugs to all colleagues who were a pure family sharing the joy for Africa and its multicultural sides, I loved this feeling ❤, and to all participants who did not think twice to attend this Magic weekend together. Looking forward to 2nd Edition, Here a small demo of my "Fast Semba " class on saturday (thank to Lucia for accepting to assist me during the class 🙏) Pk

There are always many things to say after a festival but this time I'd like to send a big "Thank you!" to all the Djs! The music was excellent, from Friday to Monday morning "after", never a dull moment!

I went, I saw, and I can confirm that I was witness to a concept that was very special in every respect. Congratulations on the selection of genuinely quality Instructors, quality Workshops, quality Deejays to whom I must thank for feeding my feet and my soul with music that were truly made in heaven. Thank you to all the lovely men and ladies, that I had the pleasure of dancing with. (Those who did not ask me to dance...your loss) ;-) Thank you to the people who came in friendship and contributed to the friendly atmosphere and a great experience. Congratulations on the choice of Hotel. (Truly fabulous, great location and so Eeeezy to get to by train). Truly a great experience and I went away a believer that...... I AM SEMBA! Multi Grazie to the organisers of this festival. I will encourage people to go in 2018. P.s. (I make observations when I go to places), so I make a special mention for Blaise Mwami....whenever I saw this guy, I saw that he made a point of making people feel welcome, greeting as many people as he could individually making them feel welcome. During the workshops, he would go from room to room sprinkling his usual brand of joyful, friendly joie de vivre (even when he's had little sleep). He's an asset to any organisation. :-) x

My Perspective 👀 ✅ 🇮🇹 I AM Semba Festival (Europe) Overall score 10 Estimated Attendance 200/250 Cost $ 🙃Take away: Fantastic concept in doing a 95% Semba Festival ~ very smart marketing Tó Costa!!! If Urban Dancer knew and understood Semba movement and music WOW!!! All the Tricks, Lifts and Expression WITH musically 🎶 Pro: Love the Event ❤️ Management and Organization fantastic! Outstanding venue, absolutely amazing instructional talent. Workshop mix spot on!!! Semba music in all tempos ❤️Absolutely love Mestre Petchu ensemble performance and historical presentation of African Rhythms, Dance and Instruments Saturday night. Dancers Skill Level Semba ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kizomba ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Con: Milan 🇮🇹 (confirmed perception) Not a fan of the general attitude of Italians. (Same experience in Rome) which has no direct bearing on the event itself! I just don't get why some (most) Italians seem to have this inadvertent need/desire to be rude! 🌎 Festival Location 9 Breaso outside of Milan, 16 minute train ride to historical Milan. 🏛Venue Hotel Da Vinci Milano (10) fantastic venue one of the best venues in Europe. Great use of space available. Suggestion: keep the party in just one room! Saturday's party seem to lose energy (my opinion) with the energy split between the two rooms. 🏨 Hotels/ Location (10) hotel and event where located in the same space ❤️ 💃🏽Social dances (10) Fantastic not one bad dance! ⏳Organization team of festival was fantastic (10) good communications from the organizers, workshops, socials started on time 😁(almost)! 🎶Music / DJ overall 10 Pre Party 9 Friday/Saturday/Sunday (10) Daytime Socials (10) The DJ's rocked the room with some Semba music I have not heard before! ❤️❤️❤️ DJ's: Francois, Hugo Boss, Carlos King, Angilson, Virgin, Frank and To Costa you folks made this event! 💃🏽 Workshops (10) Workshop were broken up by skill level and instructors were on point . Great mix of Semba /Kizomba/Afro was at skill level! I attended five workshops and the movements where to level as described in the program and participants seem to enjoy the instruction. 🤔 Would I go back ... Absolutely!!!!! As much as I love this hotel/venue it's hard to look past the rude interactions with some of the people of Italy (a few of the wait staff and local merchants) I would come again to Italy with lower expectations of basic service and try to minimize my desire for a standard of politeness 😐 If you want a great festival that is very well organized and offers a pure (95%) dose of Semba this Festival is a must!!! If you attended the I AM Semba Festival 2017, please share your experience as this is just my perspective ~ I welcome you to comment on yours. ✈️🌏🌍🌎 LEZ'S GO!!! 🎶💃🏽🚶🏽🎶 #FloorPoet🕺🏽 #BeBrave 🐻 #LifeIsBeautiful 🌻 #YouKhanhDoIt 💪🏽 #DoWhatYouLove ❤️ #WhereTheHellisMeyer 🌏 #WhatAreYouWaitingFor⏳ #DonotLetTheFearIn🚫 #@lezsgo
