Laura | 262 comments If anyone is in London or just passing by a visit to the 'West Africa Word Symbol Song' at the British Library is a must. Just passing by this week , I managed to pop in and it was an absolute delight. Spanning across quite a few nations, it touches on art music and literature. There are sections devoted to great African legends such as Fela, Achebe, Soyinka. The Fela section shows an excerpt of the documentary Finding Fela!, a film I thoroughly enjoyed in terms of getting to know more about this country and its art. The exhibition is on until 16 Feb 2016.
