West African dance

Moustapha Bangoura, whom I consider #2 best male dancer in the world as far as West African goes (I consider Yousouff Koumbassa #1) is here in Honolulu. YEEHA! He is an amazing dancer and teacher.

And he is 56. Which made me think - who is carrying on this knowledge??? It made me really really ponder - am I learning it as much as I can, so that it can live.

There is another thing that I noticed, and that is that not all of our African dancers and drummers attended. That is really strange.

This is a chance to work with a magnificant artist and teacher. I am grabbing it.
