General Details

African Dance and Drum Troupe

Direct from Senegal

There are a few assembly programs that we bring back year after year, not just out of sheer demand, but because of how important we feel the message and experience is. This show is absolutely one of those. Oumar and his group have been coming to the US from Senegal for eight years to bring American schools examples of their cultural heritage and message of unity and each year the show grows in scale and popularity.

Your students and staff will experience traditional clothing and culture, music and dance, antique instruments and drums, and tons of audience participation—all while being a part of one of the best assembly programs available anywhere. Without hesitation, I can tell you that this is a truly unique and important opportunity and almost all of our customers that have had them once, have had them back multiple times.
