KALOUM DJEMBE FESTIVAL
The festival "Kaloum Djembe " has taken place in Conakry every year since 2015 and is a brilliant and showcase of some of the many Guinean ballets and percussion groups, particularly groups created in the Kaloum area. Students who travel to Guinea with us are invited and encouraged to perform with us! Drum and dance ensembles from around the world are also encouraged to reach out for performance opportunities!
