In March each year, the International School of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) hold their annual ‘Africa Week’, in celebration of their host country and continent! Throughout the week, students learn about African culture through the discovery of music, art, and storytelling.
Throughout the week, members of Bwazan facilitated fun, interactive djembe and balafon workshops for students. Students learned traditional rhythms, developing a deeper understanding of the role of a griot and his instrument in traditional Malian society. To culminate this week’s event, Bassidi Koné and Bwazan were invited as guest artists to perform Africa Week closing ceremony to ISO students, staff and community.
