LANDOUMA FARE
with Youssouf Koumbassa
Directed by Julian McNamara and Kate Farrell.

Released by B-rave STUDIO productions.

DVD - 75 minutes

Filmed in Guinea, West Africa, this movie documents master dancer Youssouf Koumbassa during a journey home to the Boké region to learn about the traditional dances of his people, the Landouma.

Some of the dances/rhythms covered are Kombira, Korda, Tiriba, Sinte, Soli and Coucou. Great extended dancing/drumming scenes with Youssouf as well as many local dancers. Plenty of cultural information  and beautiful scenes of daily life in Guinea.

Musically we are treated to the drumming of very unique djembes that are almost never seen in the US. We will also find the music of a Foulah ensemble, a djeli song, a more modern djembe ensemble playing around a fire at night, and a wonderful original soundtrack of traditionally based West African music.

This DVD would be of special interest for dancers, drummers, and ethnomusicologists but the educational and entertainment value of this movie can be enjoyed by anyone!
