ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Join dancer/choreographer Abdoulaye Camara of Guinea, West Africa as he takes you step by step through five dance routines. Abdoulaye has taught students of all ages for many years and is especially skilled at breaking down steps into simple movements. Dances included on this DVD are Yole, Kuku, Tiriba, Mandiani and Telefone. Students may chose which dance they want to learn or "play all" and get a great workout by going through all 5 without stopping.

Yole - a traditional mask dance from the Temne people of Sierra Leone near the Guinean border. It is danced by young and old at nearly all festive occasions.

Kuku - from the forest region of Guinea, a rhythm originally used to welcome initiates back into the village

Triba - a welcoming dance of the Baga people of north western Guinea

Mandiani - a traditional Malinke rhythm from eastern Guinea, originally danced by the young girls of the village before coming of age.

Telefone - a recently composed rhythm and dance, Telefone refers to the role the drum plays in bringing people together as well as the communication between the drum and the dancer.

Each dance chapter is presented in 3 segments:
1 - dance steps are broken down and taught one at a time.
2 - the entire dance is shown from the back view
3 - the dance is performed up tempo by Abdoulaye, front view

"Guinee Fare" by Jason Hann, the CD that contains some of these rhythms can be found at www.cdbaby.com
