    Dancing is part of our identity, its part of who we are, how we express ourselves.

    This is a first attempt to document some of these dance practices and pose the question on what is meant by “traditional” African-dance.

    Idrissa Camara is originally a dancer and musician from Guinea Conakry : I founded Ballet Nimba, a UK- based African-Dance Theatre company.

    In 2013 I won an ADAD Trailblazer Fellowship (Association of Dance of the African Diaspora) and used the bursary to travel back to Guinea to record the urban and village dance practices.

    Wales, my new home country is often called the "land of Song",so then surely Guinea must be "the land of Dance"!
