Funkymama in Paris - SATURDAY March 12th

FunkyMama is back in Paris and I guess we can call it a pre-spring party !!! Funky grooves, sunshine bossa nova, feisty salsa, and a touch of new york vibe! It all happens at Le Dune, the premiere destination for (digital) graphic arts activities in Paris. This should be a nice and laid back evening, as some friends are also celebrating their 40th B'day ;-)
