Sidy Cissokho, griot and master percussionist from Senegal, used to tour the world as a solo dancer with the Ballet National de Sénégal and often accompanied Youssou N’Dour on tours. Griots can be compared to the troubadours who tell the traditions of their country through stories, music, songs, dance…
His non-profit organization Jali Kunda organizes all kinds of workshops and concerts, in which Sidy shares the musical wealth of West Africa and, on the other hand, initiates health care projects, including the volunteer organization SORA.
Fiesta!: Mexican sling:
Saturday and Sunday
13:00 – 16:00 and 17:00 – 20:00
Fiesta! invites people to work together on a Mexican garland, creating a connection between different places of the festival. Everyone can participate.
Take a piece of the riding crinoline and cut it into a nice shape. All those shapes are sewn together and while the crinoline of the high lady becomes emptier, the garland becomes fuller and longer.
