Wula Drum and Dance Ensemble

Wula Drum and Dance Ensemble comprises 17 master drummers, dancers, and instrumentalists, all from their native country of Guinea. They bring with them the vast knowledge of the traditional music and dance from each region and represent more than 15 different Guinean ethnicities. Wula Artistic Director M’bemba Bangoura, who has played the djembe drum since childhood, has traveled the world as a performer and teacher and is acclaimd for his high level of mastery of the drum. At age 21, he was invited to play for Ballet Djoliba, the national company of Guinea. Since moving to the US in 1992, Bangoura has become an integral part of the drum and dance scene, teaching hundreds of students, many of whom are now teachers themselves. Additionally, Bangoura has choreographed his own works and developed repertory for many dance companies worldwide.
