The African music and dance ensemble, led by acclaimed choreographer Maša Kagao Knez, will celebrate its 10th anniversary with an unforgettable evening of African dance and music. Accompanied by guests, the group of experienced dancers and musicians will take you into the world of West African culture and its broad array of rhythms and dances. Colourful costumes, lively African rhythms, energy and the joy in the dance will bring the wealth of the African cultural tradition closer to the audience.

 The group was established in 2009 with the aim of maintaining and spreading African cultural heritage. In 2010, its programme debuted in front of an audience at Lent Festival in Maribor and the Baofest Festival of African Culture in Ljubljana. During its ten years of operation, the group has successfully performed at all major festivals in Slovenia.

Maša Kagao Knez, the group’s leader, combines West African culture and contemporary dance in her original expression. The programme will therefore encompass both traditional African rhythms and dances and the contemporary dance expression of the dance ensemble and guest dancers, as well as original music, created by various musicians over the years for her dance performances Dia Diasso DiasporaMomentum – Avenue of Captured Moments and Concert for Mam.
