Remesha Drums a the SPAF

The Centre culturel Frontenac presents francophone artists at the Skeleton Park Arts Festival this year again!

The Centre culturel Frontenac is very excited to help represent francophone arts at the Skeleton Park Arts Festival this year again!

This year, we present you Remesha Drums, a percussion ensemble. 
Remesha Drums is a percussion ensemble originally from Burundi, now based in Ottawa since 2001. The members of Remesha drums have been playing Ingoma (Drums) since they were young boys. Traditionally drummers like Remesha are a part of ceremonies such as birth, Umuganuro (sorghum harvest) and coronation of the Mwami (Kings). These days, we play drums during all kinds of events to entertain the public such as: Canada Day, Festivals, school events and so on ….Apart playing in Ottawa -Gatineau area, Remesha Drums performed several times out of the Capital region of Canada such as Quebec City, Calgary, Montreal, Sherbrooke, Drummondville, Toronto, London-Ont, Calgary, British Columbia, New Brunswick and also in USA (Louisiana). But before they landed in Canada, they've represented Burundi culture in different ountries.
As Canada is a multicultural country, Remesha Drums would strongly like to continue to amaze all Canadians by sharing this legacy with all Canadians.

Meet us at the Skeleton Park Arts Fest !
