Kunda African Music & Dance
Noon – 12:45pm

Artists from several regions of Africa, the Caribbean, and Canada share their vibrant culture through a family-orientated show. Fronted by Kocassale Dioubate, a griot (traditional story-teller, musician, entertainer, and keeper of tribal history and tradition) from the Mandingo tribe of Guinea, West Africa, Kunda also includes Canadian percussionist/dancer Sasha Belle, Cuban percussionist-extraordinaire Toto Israel Berriel (formerly with world-renown Muñequitos de Matanzas), and Ivorian acrobat and dancer Kesseke Yeo. Original compositions set to traditional rhythms. A diverse and spectacular show that takes the audience on a colorful, cultural journey. Contagiously rhythmic and joyous!
