Melbourne Djembe is collaborating with some very talented Ghanaian artists to create a new performance in a beautiful theatre space. Their performance troupe Wassawumba has been training with West African acrobats, drummers, dancers, and musicians who share a passion for West African culture and a positive vision for the future.

They want to celebrate their unity.

The show is based around the concept of namo-alé, which means ‘who knows what the future will hold?’ in the language of the Ga people. It embraces the theme of change and the possibility of good things to come.

'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together'

Starting with a student performance, there will be hot African cuisine and drinks available in the foyer before the Namo-Alé show.
