DANCE AND DRUMMING with Gansango Dance Company
Gansango Music & Dance presents traditional and contemporary dance and music from West Africa  drawing on the stunning talent of multicultural dancers and musicians including historical and social dances from Benin, as well as modern arrangements of contemporary dance moves from across the West Africa region.. Live drums (djemb√©, djun-djun and pahol√©) and percussion (shaker and bell) accompany Gansango's modern dance arrangements based on traditional movement while colorful costumes provide cultural context for their dances.

Most Gansango artists originate from West African countries such as Benin, Togo and Ghana, and currently teach classes, workshops and residencies in the Seattle area. The team is thrilled to be here at the 30th Annual Methow Arts Festival to share the music and dance of West Africa with you this year! They invite you to clap, cheer and dance with them!
