Biography

Afo Bogolon is a powerful new collaboration between some of Melbourne’s finest African drummers and themed stilt walkers.
Bogolon stilt walkers are extremely bold, dynamic and playful. Bogolon, also known as the Mud People, reflect an ancient tribal connection to spirit and land. Bogolon is influenced by African and Aboriginal Legend as well as elements of modern Australian society, and these artists tell an engaging story as they move.
Featuring the skills of Melbourne’s top young Guinean-influenced drummers, Afo provides an intense rhythmic backdrop to the Bogolon stilt walking spectacle. Having studied throughout parts of West Africa, Afo drummers bring the intoxicating energy of djembe and dun dun to a new level – cloaked in the beauty & mystique of the faceless Bogolon costume.
Together, Afo Bogolon present a contemporary yet tribal sensory experience that has audiences entranced from the outset. This group is a hit at events including corporate & private occasions, festivals, public events and exhibitions.
Drummers (Afo) and stilt walkers (Bogolon) may also be hired on their own. To see Afo Drumming, please click below.
