About This Show

Created by Guinean choreographer Idrissa Camara in 2010. Ballet Nimba is an African Dance Theatre Company, combining traditional and contemporary Guinean dance with live music from some of West Africa’s finest musicians.

It is daybreak in Bute Park, on the banks of the River Taff at the peak of the pandemic, and a broken African man starts strumming soulfully whilst singing to reconnect with his spiritual roots…Spirit of Nimba is an uplifting survival story told through a joyous dance production which fuses African traditions with urban street dance. Set to an original soundtrack, the live score combines violin, drumkit and vocals with West African roots and rhythms on kora, bolom and djembes. IDRISSA CAMARA and Team Nimba – dancers Eddie Amoateng Manu, Ofelia Balogun, Kim Noble and musicians Mark O’Connor, Lucy Rivers and Suntou Susso – present an explosive new show that guarantees to gladden the heart!
