Evening dedicated to the music and dance of Ivory Coast Mali Guinea and Burkina Faso.
Apo Sumbò literally means "Putting hands together".
This is the message that underlies the show where each artist expresses his cultural background of origin. Traditional instruments such as Djembe and Doundoun, krin, kora become the beating heart, are part of the set design and emphasize the journey to a distant land often unknown to us or little considered. The itinerary passes from the Malinke of Guinea, the Bambarà of Mali, from the Guere and the Beté of the Ivory Coast, from the Moré and from the Senoufo of Burkina Faso.
Moments of daily life and festivals, in Africa, are enriched by rhythms and dances and Apo Sumbò wants to re-propose these realities to the public.
Founded in 2002 by Alain Franck Nahi, the Giguywassa company was one of the first African artistic realities in Italy. She has performed in Italy and Europe in several festivals and events bringing stage performances of music and dance from West Africa.
Today, the company has a new formation and brings together artists from many Sub-Saharan African countries such as Ivory Coast, Mali, Burkina Faso and Italy.
The artists and the djeli of this company bring into play their knowledge and their experience giving life to a show that is a real journey through the African cultures of West Africa.
