Sunugal in Wolof language means “Our Ship”. Ballet Sunugal is a boat where everyone paddles and everyone brings their personality. Sunugal is formed by artists from Senegal and Spain of traditional African dance and percussion. Its origins come from the Famboundy Ballet, a Dakar company where young artists began to be trained by the director Boully Sonko (former director of the national ballet of Senegal) and Djibril Sane. These artists arrived in Spain 20 years ago to spread their art in our land. Sunugal is part of those artists from Senegal and Spanish lovers of African culture and art.

Sunugal offers a trip, through its music, to West Africa where they recreate through percussion, balafon music, tama and traditional dances, rituals, ceremonies and celebrations of all the most important aspects of life. Weddings, harvest picking, parties and all adorned by an aesthetic that symbolizes traditional cultural elements using an African costume, characterized by its color, raffias, masks and other ornaments.
