Dakar Meets Minneapolis in our Soirée Djembés presentation

On Saturday, March 25, from 6:30-8:30pm, Dakar met Minneapolis in a cultural fusion of foot tapping, singing, Djembé playing fun! Djembés expert, Ghana Mbaye was kind enough to stop by, and host a Djembés performance, as well workshop for all who were interested in learning the Senegalese drumming technique. The event also featured authentic Senegalese food: Yassa. 

The rhythms and techniques of traditional Djembés playing, were felt by all throughout the room, and we are so happy that Alliance Française was able to take part in this internationally fusing event!

Un grand merci for all who attended! For more information on upcoming events, as well as other services that Alliance Française has to offer, call our office at 612 332 0436. We would be happy to talk with you!

Do not forget, our last event in Mois de la Francophonie: A round table discussion on the role of Senegalese women, this Friday (3/31) from 6:30-8:30pm!
