Danc­ing in the street

In the Moment - - Good News -

Shak­ing your thing through busy city streets while singing along to your favourite disco clas­sics might be more the stuff of night­mares than your dream ac­tiv­ity, but bear with us – it could be just the thing your sum­mer needs.

Guru Dudu is the hip-hop­ping al­ter-ego of Mel­bourne-based per­former

David Nay­lor, rst ap­pear­ing on the scene back in 2008 with his disco yoga class at the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val. He’s now tak­ing to the streets with his in­fa­mous Si­lent Disco Tours, lead­ing fel­low groovers around city sights with a killer sound­track.

At­ten­dees are given a pair of head­phones so that they can all hear the commentary from Guru Dudu, as well as his dance-mix of up­lift­ing faves from the 70s, 80s and 90s. While join­ing in with the cho­rus isn’t manda­tory, you’ll soon nd your­self singing along and get­ting groovy – as the Guru him­self says, his tours are “guar­an­teed to open the laugh­ter merid­i­ans”. Frankly,

we can’t think of a bet­ter way to ex­plore a new city. Guru Dudu is bring­ing his bo­ogy shoes to The Ed­in­burgh Fringe Fes­ti­val from 3rd-27th Au­gust. For more in­for­ma­tion and to nd

SOUNDS GOOD There’s al­ways a sum­mer an­them you can’t stop hum­ming – no mat­ter how hard you try! Stud­ies have found that try­ing to get songs like this out of your head is fu­tile – so em­brace it!
