Sekou Soumah is a talented dancer and drummer from Portland, Oregon. He began professionally dancing in 1998 with the Northwest African American Ballet. Sekou has apprenticed with several of Guinea’s best dancers: Youssouf Koumbassa, Moustapha Bangoura, and Alseny Soumah (All dancers of Les Ballets Africans of Guinea)
Studying with these master artists, Sekou developed both skill and a deep respect for the music and culture of Guinea, West Africa.
In 2005, Sekou joined a small group of elite percussionists by becoming an accredited professor for the Tam Tam Mandingue (TTM) School of Djembe Percussion, founded by Grand Master Djembe player Mamady Keita.
In 2008, he earned his TTM diploma which is the highest level one can obtain in the organization.
