Percussionist, dancer, Mohamed Mara is distinguished by his dual artistic training.

Begins his training in traditional Guinean dance in 1992. Then explores the traditional rhythms of different countries including those of Côte d'Ivoire, Congo, Burkina Faso and Guinea. In 2003, joined the ranks of the Grands Ballets Watafré in order to perfect his training in purely Guinean traditional dance. Quickly joined the professional dancers of the Ballet Matam led by the great traditional dancer master, the late Sekouba Camara dit Wasterlo of the National Ballet of Guinea.


In addition to his training as a dancer, also studies percussion and different traditional rhythms, with Master Djembéfola Doukoundou. Then in 2008 continued with the Master djembefola Famoudou Konate. Finally, participate in a training course with the Master percussionist-dancer Fodé Konate.


Driven by a desire to always improve and produce shows, also took theater and interpretation courses at the school in Conakry (1994).


Since arriving in Quebec, founded the traditional Guinean dance and percussion group "Benkadi" (recipient of the Syli de bronze at the Nuits d'Afrique festival, 2012). Inspired by the rich mixed culture of Quebec, is also interested in various dance trends, including contemporary and folk dance from Quebec. The interbreeding of these different dance forms calls out to him enormously.
