Kattam & His Tam-Tams: Rhythms of West Africa


Join percussionist Kattam Laraki-Côté on a West African adventure! Discover the culture of West Africa through drumming, singing, and dancing. Experience the language and rhythms of the Krin, Djembe, and Gongoma and learn how these instruments shaped and express regional culture. Are your students ready for the challenges Kattam will share?

Note: Dance requires an arms-length of space in each direction and drumming and rhythm activities can be enjoyed with everyday objects.

“Kattam is an amazing, dynamic and wonderfully talented performer.  His performances engage audiences of all ages and takes them on a high-energy international journey filled with wonderful music and dance. Our audience was completely connected to him and everyone was on their feet, clapping, dancing and singing along. What a great show!”
– Stephanie Turner, Tilles Center Brookville NY
