The Fanfakids are a group of young musicians from the Centrum West-D'Broej youth center in Molenbeek.
Fanfakids is a mix of young children and teenagers of youth center Centrum West-D'Broej from Molenbeek. They originate from the first Zinneke Parade in 2000 and didn't miss any other of this biennale. They rehearse twice a week. A professional percussionist of Met-x teaches them rhythms with origins in Africa, South-America or Europe on large and small drums and bells. They also make their own rhythms that originate during their jamsessions and teach smaller kids from the youth center or their schools to play the drums.
During all this years they performed on many parties, small and big festivals in Belgium, but also abroad. They have been spotted already in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Switzerland, Morocco, Ghana, Togo and Benin.
Every year they have their week of internships with daily workshops, and if possible, they travel a bit further to meet other kids and other cultures and make a common project with other young drummers, dancers, theatre or circus performancers.
They celebrate it with concerts in Belgium and abroad, international exchange-projects with other groupes of youngsters, 20 years of 'Brusselitude' in the Zinneke-Paraden new costumes and many other surprises!
Also with this website new style.
COVID-19 puts everything ON HOLD for now.
