About Cirque Kalabanté

Cirque Kalabanté was created by Yamoussa Bangoura, a multidisciplinary artist of Guinean origin. Yamoussa’s long term dream was the founding of a school of circus arts, and to direct his own multidisciplinary company specializing in the African arts. As the company director he develops his own shows which, over the past several years, have been increasingly gathering attention and recognition in the Quebec circus arts community and worldwide. Kô Ryass, and other shows such as Kumbaya, Uno, Kira Nene and Afrique en Cirque have been created and performed worldwide. Several new projects are in development for the coming years, which will continue to disseminate and promote com values.
