Les Percussions de Guinee from West Africa, widely recognized as one of the most extraordinary drumming ensembles in the world, and featured in the new Imax film PULSE: A STOMP Odyssey, is, as has been the custom, all male. In fact, until now, women were forbidden from playing the djembe. For the first time ever, these famous drummers will share the stage with the women. With Amazones, an original program by Les Percussions de Guinee, the women are placed up front and featured in a spirited and impressive new program of music, song and dance.
