Wona Womalan brings an appreciation of West Africa’s vibrant and beautiful musical arts to audiences of all ages. The ensemble dives into a breathtaking explosion of high energy and visually spectacular drumming, singing and dance. The performers wear authentic, colorful costumes that accentuate their graceful and energetic movements. Performances are interactive, allowing the audience to participate in a hands-on celebration of ethnic traditions that have spanned generations.  The music inspires the audience, no matter how young or old, to leap out of their seats and dance. The pulse of the music speaks to everyone, because it contains elements of life common to all people.

Wona Womalan will customize their performance to suit your audience. Performances can include drumming with or without dancing. Master classes, residencies and workshops can be included as part of a complete package. Please complete an online request or    contact us to book your event.
