Hey there, dancers and drummers --
Spread the word and save the dates -- Camp Fareta, hosted by Youssouf Koumbassa, will be happening again this summer, in the same beautiful, sunny location in central California, July 6-13. We're expecting to have the same great chef as well, and here's the list of confirmed or nearly-confirmed artists that Youssouf has lined up who will be gracing us with their presence:
Dance: Youssouf (of course!), Abdoulaye Sylla, Moustapha Bangoura, Mariama Camara, Alseny Soumah, Marietou Sano, Marie Basse-Wiles, Djeneba Sako, Babacar M'Baye
Drum: M'Bemba Bangoura, Fode Bangoura, Mangue Sylla, Bolokada Conde, Wadaba Kourouma, Karamba Dioubate, Lansana Kouyate (balafon), Moussa Traore, Cheikh M'Baye
Of course there will be kids camp, work-exchange, fire circles at night, and a warm and friendly community atmosphere. (For photos from the last two years, check out http://www.dancingvillage.com/ -- we hope to have the text updated in a month or so.)
It's going to be another great camp, and we hope to see you there!
