Having lived in New Zealand for the last 14 years and now living in London. I get pretty excited about dancing with large groups of people. You just don’t get to do that a lot in NZ. So Notting Hill Carnival was a blast for me. 1 million people crammed into a square mile all ready to hear an eclectic mix of music from Latin to Reggae to Drum & Bass and all sorts in between. I got to hear live Samba on Ladbroke Grove, House from KCC sound system, classic 80’s Soul from the Deviation/Killwerwatt sound system too. It rained on the Sunday, but that only made us sing more!
