October First Friday

On October 3rd, we will be having the Biboti & Wacheva Dancing & Drumming Ensemble.

The Wacheva Dance and Drum ensemble is led by Ivory Coast native Biboti Ouikahilo. In 2009 this dancer, drummer, musician, educator, choreographer, and activist co-founded the non-profit organization Wacheva Cultural Arts, Inc. in Syracuse to teach dance and drum traditions of West Africa and the world to children and adults (http://wacheva.com). He will present an interactive program in Auburn together with Kinsgley Pipim and Michael Osendah of Ghana and Josh Williams and Andrea Midicci of Syracuse.

Biboti Ouikahilo grew up in teh Sinfra Progouri West region of the Ivory Coast and began performing with the country's prestigious National Dance Company in 1980. After touring Morocco, Germany, Belgium, England, France, Yugoslavia, Italy, Kenya, Spain, and Mexico, he settled in New York City in 1997, where he taught at Djoniba Dance and Drum Center for six years. Today, Biboti is devoted to sharing his love for West African arts with the broader CNY community, uniting and celebrating the diversity of the world's cultures.
