He has a dance and percussion group «Borom Tamba» with which he has already appeared in the province.
Colubaly explains that African dance is a very expressive choreographic art, with lots of movement and vitality so students leave the lessons full of energy . «You leave very active, the music conveys feelings which you will develop with your body.» He has studied dance since he was 18 and has been part of the National Ballet of Senegal.
He came to our town this summer to stay because he says he likes the place, climate and its people, the open and friendly y character they have and for this reason he would like to give class in Rincon de la Victoria with this dance from the neighboring continent.
