Out of Africa and into Casula

August 31, 2013

Kultour is proud to present Keyim Ba’s African Caravan, a collection of world class West African musicians who are bringing the rhythm, dance and music of West Africa to Australian audiences. Diverse and innovative, African Caravan explores melody, song, rhythm and movement across culture and time, taking audiences on an extraordinary musical journey into West Africa. Embracing percussive as well as melodic pieces, African Caravan offers a show of explosive and powerful African drumming and high energy dance while capturing the alluring sounds of West African melodies accompanied by the kora (West African harp), guitar and balafon.

Their hands were drumming before their feet were walking, and what I wouldn’t give to be able to dance like that! With their outstanding musicianship and harnessing the explosive power of Guinean drumming, dance and song, Keyim Ba infuses the audience with an undeniable urge to move your body!
