Get ready for Camp Fareta 2015, July 5-11
Our 10th year!

Stay tuned for further information on this year's guest artists and the class schedule in late February.

Camp Fareta is a residential workshop hosted by Youssouf Koumbassa, a master dancer, choreographer, and teacher from Guinea, West Africa, and featuring many other master dancers and drummers from Guinea, Mali, and Senegal. It is an immersion in West African drum and dance that started in 2006 and is held at a beautiful setting in the southern Sierras of California each summer.
