African Drumming and Dance


African Drumming and DanceThis time I’ve got another truly behind-the-scenes look for you as I interview a famous African drummer and choreographer who I met at the Dance Complex in Central Square.

Sidi Mohamed Camara, or “Joh,” is from Bamako, Mali. He’s been in in the US since 1995, teaching and performing all around the country. He now lives right here in Boston, where he teaches drumming and dance at Harvard and BU — along with community and private lessons.

I thought it was quite amazing to find a prominent African musician accessible via the Red Line, so I asked him to tell his story, then sat in on a class of drumming and dancing.
