THE BAND

THE BAND

With a splendid repertoire that draws heavily from the rich traditions of West African performance art, Sangea continues to brilliantly redefine what it means to revitalize tradition and in turn captivate a modern audience. Sangea is a diverse West-African performance group made up of 8 members from several countries in Africa, and from Mexico and Canada. The name of the group means female leader and is a common name given to young girls in Liberia. Established in 2012, the group has grown from being a household name amongst several communities within the Edmonton area to becoming a leader in the forward progression of traditional West-African music, dance, poetry, and theatre in its home province and across the country at large.
All of its growth and success can be attributed to its steadfast mission to preserve and share African culture, to captivate and inspire its audience, and to build cultural bridges through artistic expression. Sangea is the winner of the 2015 Fil Fraser Award for Outstanding Performance, the winner of the Afro-Canadian Heros Artist of the Year award in 2014 and the winner of the 2013 and 2014 Excellent Community Initiative Group Award by Action for Healthy Communities. The group led with the proud support of its audience and its community when it expanded to create an academy division that teaches West-African drumming and dancing. Sangea organizes an annual themed family-friendly concert that is growing to become one of the highest points of the year in Edmonton’s festival calendar. The group continues to perform at festivals, community and private events, schools, weddings, and all other kinds of events all throughout the year. All of the group’s success has not obscured its mission to inspire its audience and leave behind a legacy that reminds all of the priceless wealth in preserving and sharing tradition, and the power of using artistic expression as a medium for inspiring others and uniting all.
