IVORIAN DANCE  & Drumming Workshops

and SUNDAY 13th FEBRUARY in GLASTONBURY (as previously announced),
all the details below.

Malika began learning the traditional dances of her homeland from a very young age, and later  trained at the Ecole de Danse et d'Echange Culturel, directed by Rose-Marie Guiraud in Abidjan. After her training, she joined Les Guivoures, who toured internationally in the 80s and 90s.
Malika's career then led her to Europe, where she was a member of Zavoalo, an Ivorian Traditional Dance Troupe founded by Bido Irie in 1997

She is an invigorating and inspiring teacher, and we are really priviledged to have her teach in Bristol and Glastonbury for a week-end of Ivorian Culture!!

Malika's class will be musically accompanied by Bi Do Irie, who is an exceptional  Master Drummer from the Manfla village, Guroland, Ivory Coast. He entered Ecole de Danses et d'Echange Culturelle, Ivory Coast in 1983, and performed with Les Guivoures for 10 years, touring internationally.  Highlights include: 1989 Brooklyn Academy of Music - Duram High School of Chuk Davis - Alvin Ailey Dance School ,1990 Invitation from N'DAYA International in Greece, 1991 Invitation from Les Placettes to Switzerland Bi Do moved to Germany in 1993.
