We love Africa!
The art of traditional African drum and dance.
We love Africa and we have made it our goal to preserve its culture in this fast changing world. The traditional art of ngoma (African drumming & dancing in Swahili) is our expertise, and our mission is to spread this art as much as possible. By performing, but also by teaching it to others. Not just because we think it is beautiful, but also because we feel art helps people grow.
Shine Africa exists of a group of professional drummers and dancers from different tribes in Tanzania. All of them also come from underpriviliged backgrounds (growing up without parents, on the street, in the slums) and their mission their mission is to use their talents to help young people from similar backgrounds. At the same time they want to spread their love for traditional African culture, which is why they both perform as well as teach classes.
Eventually Shine Africa wants to set up its own Community Art Center. Children and adults will be welcome here to learn the art of ngoma, explore their artistic talents,and also for English classes, help with homework, meditation and yoga. , me
