Final Class and Concert
April 24, 2012
I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who has come out to support the Géwël Tradition Project by taking classes and sharing themselves with Moustapha, Nogaye and Malick.
If you have come out to classes you understand what a special opportunity their residency has afforded those of you who love sabar dance and drum, as well as those of you who have an interest in the culture of Senegal specifically or the continent of Africa in general.
First of all they are bringing energy directly from Senegal. They are each an essential part of the cultural life of Dakar, Senegal and before arriving in the U.S. they have been playing and dancing for both social and traditional events in Senegal.
Secondly , and most importantly, Nogaye, who is a star performer in Senegal, provided the rare opportunity to have class with a woman dancer from a Géwël family. During this month Nogaye is the only female member of the Sing sing family (or other Géwël families) teaching sabar in the US. She will be teaching her last class of this residency on Wednesday, April 25. I hope to see some of you there. Again thank you for al of your support.
