Jamo Jamo Arts is a collection of professional artists, musicians and craftsmen from West Africa, who aim to educate, entertain and inspire through their respective arts. It is led by Senegalese performers Landing Mané in the UK, Fodé Mané in Australia and Ousmane Mané in Sweden.

Dr. Hélène Neveu Kringelbach is a Departmental Lecturer in Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford. Her study of social mobility in Dakar, as seen through the lives and work of performers, was published in 2013 as a prize-winning monograph, Dance Circles: Movement, Morality and Self-Fashioning in Urban Senegal. She is currently working on a study of transnational families between Senegal, France and the UK.
