Nigui Saff K-Dance – is the name of Cote D’Ivoire’s premier Mapouka music and dance movement.
The group is made up of 8 extraordinarily talented individuals. The band consists of 4 male musicians: vocalists, percussionists and drummers. Their sound is described as melodic with a captivating tempo-- It is the sound of the Nigui Saff village—it is Mapouka.
The dancers are 4 beautiful Avikam ladies. They move with grace akin to the subtle yet powerful rush of the waves on the Gulf of Guinea, coupled with an unassuming sensuality.
The group has won numerous acclaim in Africa and Europe. In 2002, the group won best African dance and music at the International Music Awards in South Africa. Michael Jackson and Nelson Mandela were on hand to present the group with this most distinguished honor.
Nigui Saff has also toured Europe visiting Holland, France and Belgium. The group continues to express and represent the art and majesty of the Nigui Saff tribal tradition.
