The colorful dancers and musicians of Afrique Sogue bring a musical-cultural celebration that will literally spill of the Ashkenaz stage and into the audience. Afrique Sogue is a traditional West African performing arts company based in the East Bay. Under artistic director Mohamed Lamine Bangoura, Afrique Sogue (meaning “the Sun of Africa”) presents an evening filled with the musical culture of the Manding and Mandinka people, those descendants of the great pre-colonial empire of what is now considered Guinea, Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso.
