Our Mission

The mission of Titambe West African Dance Ensemble is to preserve and perpetuate the African aesthetic and its influence on world cultures, through the education and professional presentation of dance, music and folklore.

In 2003, the founder and artistic director Christian Yao Adeti relocated to the United States of America and formed another branch of the Titambe Drum and Dance Ensemble Company in Minnesota – Titambe West African Dance Ensemble. This group has done African dance performance in various venues in Minnesota, as well as in Texas, Chicago, Wisconsin, among others

Titambe West African Dance Ensembles mission is to preserve traditional African drumming and dance heritage as well as promoting cultural understanding. This is done by educating audiences of all ages about different African countries through language, music, and movement for a better appreciation of diversity. Through performances and dance lessons in Minnesota, we are able to reach out to the communities.

Titambe Drum and Dance is committed to sharing knowledge, building long lasting relationships with their community and its leaders, and developing professional artists that will produce quality productions. These artists are mainly comprised of Ghanaians, Liberians, Kenyans, Trinidadians as well as American born.
