Camp Fareta

West African dance and drumming

Camp Fareta is a weeklong residential workshop hosted by Youssouf Koumbassa, a master dancer, choreographer, and teacher from Guinea, West Africa, and featuring many other master dancers and drummers from Guinea, Mali, and Senegal.  It is an immersion in the culture — music, dance, food, history, etc. — of Guinea, Mali, and Senegal held at a beautiful setting in the southern Sierras of California in early July.

Camp Fareta received a grant from ACTA’s Living Cultures Grants Program in 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2007.
