Artistic Director: Louise Raymond
Malicounda’s founder, Louise Raymond, was fortunate to be able to study with master West African dancers and drummers not only in Senegal but also with ex-patriot teachers in Canada and the United States. Louise is extremely grateful and appreciative that she has been able to experience the beauty of dance and the power of rhythm through these generous artists. These studies have greatly expanded Louise’s world view and life vision. For 30 years, with all her love, Louise has shared her passion and respect for this vital culture, touching the lives of thousands of people– children, youth, adults, and elders- through rhythm.
