Fara Tolno Biography:

Fara TolnoFara Tolno was born in Guinea, West Africa. He spent his youth in the village of Kissidugu and Guinea’s capital city, Conakry.  Playing djembe since the age of nine, he has traveled extensively performing and teaching both drumming and dance.

Fara spent nine years as the lead drummer for Les erveilles de Guinea (The Wonders of Guinea) under the tutelage of West Africa’s most influential director and choreographer, Kemoko Sano.  Fara is a keeper of the history, the music, and the dance in his culture. 

Fara holds an MFA from the University of Colorado, and travels the United States working with University Dance and Music Programs as well as independent companies and cultural centers.  He is taking this knowledge and finding ways to relate and merge the art form of dance and music from his culture with that of the western world.

Fara is sharing this new and innovative perspective through his teaching in community and university classes, providing a one of a kind opportunity and outlook at traditional West African dance, and its relation historically and currently into the western world.

Fara is the founder, director, and choreographer for Kissidugu, his percussion and dance ensembles across the country and in Guinea.  He trains and performs with a variety of students; combining traditional performance styles and pieces from Guinea with his own insights and knowledge of rhythms and movement.  

He is a joy to take class with and his energy will infuse you!
