Namo-Alé was a collaborative African drum and dance performance involving the Melbourne Djembe team, and Ghanaian artists Kwame Tosuma, Dan Hammond, Emmanuel Aryeetey and Ronald Mensah – dancers, drummers and acrobats.
The words ‘Namo-Alé’ mean ‘who knows what the future holds?’ in the language of the Ga people. The show explores the concept of time, growth and change and celebrates the joy that arises from different cultures together.
We had over 200 people attend the show and it received amazing accolades. We are very excited about creating more collaborative African drum and dance shows in the years to come.
