Ourmar FrontPageLed by renowned percussionist and educator, Oumar “Alex” Sagna from Senegal, West Africa, Mandinka Roots facilitates Drumming and African Dance Workshops and African Awareness year-round for schools, community and corporate groups (team building), individuals and events.
Through Mandinka Roots, Oumar’s mission is to help build healthy and active communities through positive African Awareness, regular drumming and dance classes, drum circles, workshops and performance for all occasions.
Drumming enhances a feeling of individual happiness and well-being; more profoundly, it relieves stress and stimulates virtually all areas of the brain. Through the healing power of drumming we unite people, create fun, freeness of spirit and release positive energy allowing everyone to bond and have fun! At Mandinka Roots we have applied our skills and knowledge to use drumming as a tool for obtaining positive results in a wide range of community, education and training environments.
Working in accordance with your needs, we have the experience and expertise to create a tailor-made program that addresses your requirements and more than matches your expectations. We provide up to 30 drums per workshops
