Afro-Caribbean Cultural Events

TamTam is the first Afro Caribbean Music Festival of the Pacific Northwest. It’s taking its name from an African percussion instrument. In African lore, it is said that that instrument was sometimes used by the ancients as a long distance communication device, news were announced that way and meetings were called that way. So, in essence, TamTam is the means through which the different Afro-Caribbean communities of the Pacific Northwest can come together and herald “We’re here, we exist and we want to share our beautiful cultures with you”. The Festival is taking place in Seattle every summer and is featuring artists from the USA, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. TamTam offers a little taste of home away from home to some and a night of cultural immersion to others

TamTam est le nom d’un festival de musique qui a vu le jour à Seattle dans le Nord-ouest des Etats-Unis. C’est un festival qui trouve son caractère original dans sa programmation qui est surtout axée sur les musiques originaires d’Afrique, des Antilles ou encore d’Amérique du Sud.
Plus qu’un Festival de musique, TamTam veut d’abord introduire ces différentes cultures dans la conscience collective de cette région dont la population est très progressiste et porte une attention particulière aux idées nouvelles. Mais plus important encore, TamTam veut surtout offrir par son existence l’opportunité aux ressortissants des Antilles, d’Afrique et d’Amérique du Sud de retrouver l’espace d’une nuit l’ambiance du pays.
