Taama (Journey)

Théâtre de la Guimbarde    Charleroi, Belgium / Burkina Faso    Music

A woman seeks a haven of peace to rebuild her nest and set up her shop. In her bags, she has the instruments that remind her of the sounds and songs of her country. So many treasures that make its richness. Along the way, she meets a traveling musician who joins her on a shared musical path that crosses borders of culture and language. Taama – “Journey” in the Dioula language of Burkina Faso – brings together a Burkinabe singer and a Breton violinist in a colourful world that mixes traditional rhymes and classical melodies.
