World Arts West is proud to support the actualization of Latanya d. Tigner’s 20+ year vision of 5th Quarter Bantaba, a collaboration with Jackson State University’s Sonic Boom of the South, Magatte Fall, Alseny Soumah and Ouseynou Kouyate. This dream in action will be presented with collaborator and cultural advisor Alseny Soumah and other California-based dance artists.
Join us for a memorable evening and be part of the process! Learn the history and purpose of 5th-Quarter Bantaba. Hear the initial research and JSU drum majors’ workshop findings. See some of the doundounba choreographic phrases created to date in response to this research. The gathering will conclude with a doundounba class led by the phenomenal Alseny Soumah of Guinea!
