Get Your Kutiro On with Ousmane Sall!
Learn Kutiro rhythms and dances with Ousmane Sall! Cumbe is excited to offer you a chance to learn the high energy Kutiro dances from the Cassamance region of the south of Senegal. Kutiro, named for the the drum used to play the dance’s rhythms, is inspired by nature and traditional activities. The Kutiro family of dances are often fast-paced and feature intricate footwork and expressive arm movements. Ekonkon, for example, draws its movements from rice planting and harvesting while the movements in Linjin emulate a flying crane! Ousmane brings a warmth and presence into the classroom that encourages each student to feel at ease, inspiring the freedom to open up to the rhythm.
