LES BALLETS AFRICAINS was formed in Paris in 1952 by distinguished Guinean choreographer, Keita Fodeba, who enjoyed the support of numerous African heads of state. Les Ballets Africains toured the world successfully until Guinea's independence in 1958 when they were invited to become the country's national ensemble. Between 1958 and the present day, Les Ballet Africains has visited the four corners of the earth sometimes remaining on tour for up to two years at a stretch. On one extraordinary marathon, they appeared in 165 capital cities, presenting an astonishing 695 performances in 750 days, traveling 180,000 kilometer by plane, 33,000 by train and 21,000 by road.
