Sankofa Beats is a collective of Edinburgh based musicians, dancers and singers who all have a passion for African dance and melodies. They fuse dance traditions learnt on their travels across the continent to create exciting new choreographies – high energy djembe dances, rhythmic gumboot, mesmerising belly dances and more. The group is a true melting pot of cultures, with members coming from America, Ghana, Spain, Kenya, Scotland and Siberia. The international flavour of the group highlights its belief in Wontanara – a West African saying which means ‘we are one’!
