Dance, Drum & Sing with Cool Out Sun

Saturday

 

Kwame Tosuma is one of the lead dancers at Melbourne Djembe. Having performed throughout Ghana, Mali, Benin and South Africa and now living in Australia, Kwame is emerging as one of Australia’s most talented in the traditional and afro-contemporary dance forms. Like many of Ghana’s top dancers, Kwame began practicing his art on the street. Finding a passion for dance he was picked up and rigorously trained by the renowned Joe Mensah, and later joined the Namo Ale Cultural Troupe, where he learned the intricacies of traditional Ghanaian dance. The remaining members of Cool Out Sun use authentic African instrumentation to create an accessible workshop of dance, African drumming and multi-bilingual vocals.
