Dundun Dance Club - Open House
Tickets now available
Do you love to move to the beat of live drumming? The Dundun Dance Club is a unique opportunity to learn ancient drumming dances that originated from the Baga women of Guinea, West Africa.
Dunduns are large cylindrical bass drums played with sticks. When played these drums offer the medicine of connecting to your own personal strength and presence. They can also help us to invite healing rhythms and joy into our lives.
Dundun Dance events and retreats are an opportunity to explore rhythm, play, reflect and connect to your body wisdom.
Our May 6 Open House event is an opportunity to unleash your inner dancer and drummer in a welcoming, supportive and nourishing environment. You can come do deep inner work, or simply enjoy experiencing the vitality of communal drum and dance.
For a deeper dive with the medicine you may choose to come to our Dundun Dance One-Day Retreat on Saturday May 26.
Drums are available if you need one. No experience required.
Kemoko Sano introduced Dundun Dance to the United States over 10 years ago. Through his choreography with internationally performing groups, Les Merveilles De Guinee and Les Ballets Africains. Dundun Dabce became more know in the USA and beyond.
I’ve been blessed to have studied Dundun dance in Guinea, West Africa with M'Bemba Bangoura, and Mr. Kemoko Sano’s son, Seiku Sano, current director of Les Merveilles. For over 4 years I studied and peformed Dundun Dance with Master Drummer, Mohammed Diaby in his company Mandingue Foli Kan Don and Master Dancer Sani Abu in his company Ijo Vudu Dance Co.
My passion and respect for West African drum & dance led me to live in West Africa, so I could eat, sleep and breathe the rhythms. The result was deep healing, dear friendships and activation of my purpose. It is with great respect and honor that I share these ancient drumming dances.
