Choreographer and Dancer
Well-known for her dynamic and breathtaking performances, the Taafé Fanga Company has been a staple at many World Dance and Music Festivals throughout Quebec for 15 years. In 2012, multidisciplinary artist Estelle Lavoie released her album, Tamala, produced by Senegalese artist Élage Diouf. Awarded first place in the World Music Contest Les Syli d’or in 2007, the company covered for world-famous Youssou N’Dour at the Olympia during the Nuits d’Afrique Festival.
“The members of Taafé Fanga united through their shared passion for the rhythms of West Africa. Together, they offer a unique performance, uniting music and dance into one. Inspired by their travels, experiences, and encounters, they redefine and adapt the language to their image in a modern and urban way, while respecting the West-African traditions that inspire them.”
