Malicounda’s founder, Louise Raymond, was fortunate to be able to study with master West African dancers and drummers not only in Senegal but also with ex-patriot teachers in Canada and the United States. Louise is extremely grateful and appreciative that she has been able to experience the beauty of dance and the power of rhythm through these generous artists. These studies have greatly expanded Louise’s world view and life vision. For 30 years, with all her love, Louise has shared her passion and respect for this vital culture, touching the lives of thousands of people– children, youth, adults, and elders- through rhythm. The Malicounda goal is to make people appreciate the richness of cultural diversity and to also feel good about who they are in this world. The Company was awarded several grants from Arts Start in Vancouver, Foundation for the Arts in Alberta and Culture in Schools in Québec. She is an inspiring presenter and a motivating facilitator. Her customized approach and the unique, vibrant and engaging options of Malicounda offer stand out in their originality. Malicounda’s workshops can be conducted in English, French and Spanish.
