African Drumming with Mangue Sylla

Mangue is coming back!!
African Drum Class $20.00

Mangue Sylla was born in Conakry, Guinea in and started playing music at the age of 7. Although he is Susu, he learned the traditional Malinke music on the Sangban from a group of master Malinke drummers. This gave him a great foundation in the music

and the ability to progress quickly.

In 1993 Mangue joined the well known ballet troupe: "Les Merveilles de Guinee”. This provided him the opportunity to travel throughout Africa and study under the leadership of the late great Kemoko Sano. In 1998 Mangue moved to the US and has made quite a name for himself. He keeps a busy schedule performing, and teaching at most major dance conferences nationwide. He also works with numerous organizations including, but not limited to: Alvin Ailey Arts in Ed, Wula Drum and Dance NYC, Drum Cafe, Marylin's Bamdulaye, and Nandy's Sankofa Kuumba Cac (summer program for children).
