About This Artist

Afrique Sogue Percussion and Dance is a traditional West African performing arts company based in the Bay Area, California. Afrique Sogue, meaning, The Sun of Africa, celebrates the dance and musical culture of the Manding and the Mandinka people, those descendants of the great pre-colonial empire of what is now considered Guinea, Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Ivory Coast, and Burkina Faso. Afrique Sogue proclaims the diversity and unity of these regions, through performance art and arts education. AfriqueSogue engages audiences and participants in cross-cultural dialogue, collaboration, and innovation through live entertainment, education, and professional artistic services.

 

About This Project

Recovering Home explores the unique subjectivities of identity from different ethnic and racial backgrounds, whose paths have woven together on a journey to find home. Coming from the far reaches of the globalized experience, this piece explores a convergence of quests for connection, a sense of belonging and a space to integrate our stories past and present.
