Limanya Drum and Dance Ensemble, under the direction of Mandjou Mara, performs traditional music and dance from Guinea and Mali, West Africa. By incorporating song, dance, drum and theatre, Limanya's performances are high-energy entertainment for all audiences. Limanya is composed of a diverse group of dancers and drummers who share a love of African tradition, celebration, and culture.

 

Kikeh Mato's funky African grooves will make you dance all night long. Mandjou Mara brings his experience and expertise as a griot (praise singer) and djembefola (master drummer) to contemporary music with his Afro-pop band Kikeh Mato. Noting the power of the moon to provide solace, inspiration, and hope (the traditional role of the griot  in Guinea), Mandjou named his group Kikeh Mato meaning "look at the moon." Continuing his role as a griot through preforming his original music, Mandjou offers the world comfort, joy, and encouragement.
