This group of master musicians, dancers and storytellers from various West African countries has come together to share the beauty and energy of traditional West African culture. Masabo is no stranger to the school show: the group has performed hundreds of school-based performances, and has facilitated workshops and classes for students and teachers alike. The group has a CD called Solognougo.
