Mama Afrika is a percussion group that was founded in Dakar/Senegal in 1987 and has been one of the most dazzling African groups in Germany for several years. The African collective consists of percussionists, dancers, acrobats and singers. Their repertoire is based on exploding rhythms of the sabar and djembe drums, paired with concise phrases of the small tama hourglass drum and the harmonic sounds of the balaphone and kora. Together they conquer the hearts of the audience with their unique performances, but never lose sight of the intercultural mediation of their activities to promote mutual respect and understanding. The artists of Mama Afrika are committed to their rich African tradition and are true masters on their instruments. A life without music is unimaginable for them, because music means life in Africa.
