The Center for Indigenous Music and Culture and Flagstaff Arts Council are pleased to present Merveilles at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Sunday, October 11, 2015. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show begins at 7:00pm.
Merveilles is an African drum and dance gathering with performers from Guinea, Ghana and Zimbabwe. Featured performers include Fara Tolno, Ismael Bangoura, Karamoko Camara, Marietou Camara, Rujeko Dumbutshena, Soriba Fofana, and Maputo Mensah.
Master drummers and dancers who have studied both in the United States and in their home countries will teach classes at different locations, October 9-11. The weekend will culminate in a Teacher Performance here at the Coconino Center for the Arts. Merveilles teachers will display their unique style and skill for the public, bringing their traditional art form to a new audience.
