Say hello to #WCW Marie Basse-Wiles, the icon, the legend. Born in Dakar, Senegal, Marie is one of the first Senegalese dancers to teach West African dance in New York City. The granddaughter of Bambara singer and dancer Maimouna Keita, she began her professional career at the age of 9 and began teaching at the age of 12 as a member of the Ballet National of Senegal. On Sunday, Marie Basse will take students of all levels through the rhythms and steps of the Djembe styles from the Khasonke people of Mali. Don't miss out on this opportunity to study with a very special teacher! Link in bio
Meet Eto! @kanduetoo he is one of our drummers and the guy you'll find doing some pretty cool acrobatics during our shows ! He is very talented and believes music is a big part of his life.
Keep reading to find out more about his story 📖✍: Eto started flipping as a kid when he was only 7 years old back in Congo, it all started as something he would do with friends for fun and to kill time by the beach pretty much. He considered that his school since education was very limited back home. Over the years he became more skilled as he also practiced bboying in high school once in Edmonton and learned new tricks but always did it as a hobbie until he joined @sangea_academy and not decided to show his talent to bigger audiences in Edmonton and other cities. Eto has also learned how to play the Kenkeni (drum) through sangea and continues to grow as a drum player but has learned from Reckie Lloyd (leader of Sangea) since he was in high school in a group called World Drummers back in 2009 and even before then he first experienced drumming in a Church when he was 9 years old and knew he liked it.
