Thanks to an MRAC Arts Learning grant, Cassandra and Jawaahir Dance Company invite you to join us for a FREE event to meet Amel Tafsout. This charismatic and multi-faceted
artist will be teaching the Company both the Guedra and Dancing to Raï music—both specific to the area of North Africa.
From her biography page on Amel's website: "The legendary Amel Tafsout, meaning ‘Hopes of Spring’, is an inspirational first source master dance artist, choreographer, instructor, frame drummer, singer, energy worker and
one of the finest exponents of North African traditional and contemporary Maghreb Dance of our time. With a research in dance anthropology, and a long training in various healing practices, Tafsout’s knowledge of her
culture and her experience in many dance styles and music make her very unique."
