Spend your lunch hour with Ballet Creole and their new drum and dance production, courtesy of the Canadian Opera Company. Tounkande, which means “the gathering of people,” celebrates the cultural heritage of the Malinke people. Elements from the drummers’ backgrounds are infused into the production, which combines songs, dances, and rhythms of Guinea, West Africa, and Trinidad and Tobago.
