Gambian Dance Retreat


  • The Gambia
“In February/March 2017 I had the honour to work with Gambian percussionist Musa Mboob. As part of the Arts Council we travelled with a group of UK based musicans to work with 3 tribes: learning their music and rhythms and learning their dance moves in a project called The Bollo Project, meaning exchange. For me, this was a life changing experience. I kept thinking: I wish this could be available to the public! This is such a rich experience that should be available to others also. So Musa and I started talking about creating this retreat for you all. We will learn dances of the Jolla, Karondinka and Wollof tribe, we will learn their songs and we will even have an opportunity to dance side by side with them. We also have a few excursions planned to give all participants the full experience of The Gambia. There will be plenty of down time planned also for people to enjoy The Smiling Coast Of Africa or relax at the swimming pool of the hotel. The Gambia with its thriving culture is THE place to be for your 2018 dance holiday plans!”
