Landing Mane

Landing Mané has been a performing artist for over 20 years and he embodies the spirit of Senegalese music and dance. Landing has studied traditional West African dance and drumming since the age of 4, and received formal training in Afro jazz and classical ballet at the National Conservatory of Dakar.

Landing  has an immense repertoire of celebratory rhythms that he teaches and performs, which originate primarily from the Mandinka, Diola, and Wolof traditions of Senegal, as well as some from Guinea and Mali.

Landing  will be teaching Casamance dance from his homeland this year as well as jointly faciliating Serouba drumming classes with Malo Sonko
