Biography

Wonuwali was founded in 1998 by N'Fanly Camara and Outi Kallinen. Explosive percussion rhythms, beautiful love songs and skillful dancers are best seen on stage!
This energetic African-Finnish group performes their traditional rhythms and dances from West-Africa, mainly Guinea. Instruments such as balafons, djembes, gongomas and krins together with songs bring you to the origins of rhythm.
Arrangements and choreographies are by Camara/Kallinen and group's artistic leader is N'Fanly Camara.
