Kattam and His Tam-Tams
On Sale Thursday, August 15th at 10:00 AM
An incredible multicultural adventure.
Join Alaska Junior Theater and Kattam on an incredible multicultural adventure.
Percussionist and storyteller Kattam Laraki-Côtè invites you to discover Africa, the Middle East and India through rhythm, song and dance in Kattam and His Tam-Tams! From African rap and desert dance to Moroccan Trance, Sufi Rhythms and Bollywood Dance, Kattam will be your guide as you discover the musical styles he perfected studying under masters from around the world.
When not traveling the world with his show Kattam lives in Montreal, Quebec. He is also an accomplished recording artist who started his training with classical music, studying piano, singing and percussion. It did not take to long for Kattam’s passion and excitement for world music to take hold and guide the rest of his artistic endeavors.
That love for world music shines through each of Kattam’s over 200 performances a year. Accompanied by his monkey and two friends, Kattam never fails to delight and involve his audience! No matter your age, he will get you moving to the beat of his drums and help you find a beat of your own.
