Feraba - African Rhythm Tap
Traditional West African Music and Dance fused with Tap dancing
“The performance was exhilarating! In a nutshell, encore s’il vous plait!."
Brooklyn Public Library
Féraba was founded in New York City in 1995, through the collective creative vision of Austrian tap dancer Irene Koloseus and world-renowned master balafonist Abou Sylla from Guinea, West Africa.
A multicultural and multiethnic performance group, Féraba fuses the traditional sounds and movements of West Africa with the American artistic form of tap dance.
Féraba is dedicated to the appreciation and the preservation of American Tap dance and traditional West African music, dance and culture.
Feraba’s mission is to inform, educate and entertain through the universal language of rhythm, promoting the ideal of friendship, tolerance and cultural understanding among people of all nations
