About Malicounda Dance Company
Malicounda Dance Company performs music and dance primarily in Canada and the United States. Our program will help build an awareness of a different cultural context. This will help in recognizing the similarities that we all have as people and respecting the differences from which we can all learn.
For thousands of years, drumming and music were part of everyday life. Our goal is to let the people discover another culture through movement, drumming, and language!
About the performance
One of the goals of Malicounda is to bring people together by making music together as a group. The technique used is accessible to everybody and taught in several countries around the world. Volunteers will be encouraged to create their own music.
Fun and pleasure are guaranteed! Drumming is an expression of a physical, psychological, and spiritual state of being that enables people to give meaning and context to their greatest joys and hopes. This musical expression contributes to a sense of wholeness.
