Posted on behalf of Talkin' the Drum...
This Pulse is a powerful coming together of the two African dance troupes in Brisbane! This is a Pulse not to be missed!
Talkin' the Drum takes great pleasure in presenting:
Papasa is an exciting blend of dance, rhythm & soul of 3 quite diverse African traditions – Ghana, Kenya & Ethiopia. Formed by Ghanaian drummer & dancer Nii Armah & Kenyan singer & dancer Sam Okoth, this African group has a rare & earthy African feel. Musically & in dance, Papasa has a broad dynamic range - from the gentle & soulful syncopated rhythms of the Kenyan ‘Nyatiti’ to the explosive poly-rhythms of Ghana.
Tribalicious is a fantastically vibrant 11-piece African drum & dance troupe. They perform the full power rhythms & dances of West Africa with such exuberance that you’ll find the word ‘Tribalicious’ as the Oxford dictionary definition for ‘high energy’!! Backed up by a totally rocking rhythm section the Tribalicious dancers capture the attention of any audience, leaving them enlivened and inspired.
This Pulse Tribalicious & Papasa weave together their individual dances & songs, as well as performing as one big fantastic mega-group, strengthening the healthy bonds existing within the Brisbane African drum & dance community. And for all you crazy dancers out there, have no fear, there will be plenty of pumping music dedicated to your dancing feet!!
African rhythms by many hands! The night opens at 8pm with an exciting performance by many positive people working with Elliott on a rhythm called Abodan that they are developing to perform at the Trails of Light parade presented by Woodford Theatre Company on Sept 24th Currumbin Beach.
