“Cirque Kalabanté Productions (Guinea/Québec) brings explosive drumming, dance routines, and bold acrobatics that display a range of African arts. With a non-stop, dizzying pace, the group delivers mind-blowing acrobatic sequences with extraordinary precision, made all the more dramatic by hypnotic percussion.” Sharonne Cohen, Montreal’s Festival International Nuits d’Afrique.
Multidisciplinary artist who started his circus training with the Guinean troupe Circus Baobab, Yamoussa Bangoura began his professional career joining the African and European tour of the show "La légende du singe tambourinaire."
After being spotted in Spain during one of the tours of the Cirque Éloize, he was recruited to be one of the creators and acrobats of the world tour of the show Nomade, from 2002 to 2007. Then, he joined in 2010 the equestrian company Cavalia for the creation of the show Odysséo and toured with them until 2012 before he could now focus on the projects of his own company Productions Kalabanté.
