Dakar-Bamako Express, named after the railway that connected many people and cultures across a short distance of 800 miles, presents audiences with a high-energy African music experience. Featuring performers from Mali, Guinea, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Tanzania and America, this ultra-interactive assembly performance showcases some of the diversity of music and dance found in West Africa. The team blends instruments such as the djembe, dunun, balafon, kora, calabash, steel pan, kamale n’goni, 6-string electric bass, with vocals in 4 languages to create an immersive and inclusive experience for audiences of all ages.
