NSMA will also sponsor a free drumming and dance workshop for kids K-8 on Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Grand Marais Art Colony. Participants in this workshop may perform some numbers with Titambe at the concert Saturday night if they wish.
Titambe West African Dance & Drum Ensemble is a unique, world-class ensemble based in Minneapolis. Established in 2001 in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a multicultural performing arts organization, Titambe moved to Minneapolis with founder and artistic director Christian Yao Adeti in 2003. The group’s mission is to preserve traditional African drumming and dance heritage, as well as promote cultural understanding.
This is done by educating audiences of all ages about different African countries through language, music and movement for a better appreciation of diversity. Through performances, workshops, and school residencies, the group’s members—from Ghana, Liberia, Kenya, Trinidad and the U.S.––reach out to our communities.
Titambe has a repertoire of over 100 performance pieces incorporating traditional drumming, dance, music, storytelling, dance-drama, reggae-dancehall, ndombolo, soukous, coupe decale, and others.

Grand Marais city councilors voted 4-1 May 9 to pursue
litigation against the Wisconsin firm, Burbach Aquatics. The action,
if successful, will allow the city to participate in ongoing efforts
to construct a community center.
An action for declaratory judgment will be filed by Flaherty & Hood,
the city’s legal counsel, seeking relief against Burbach Aquatics
Inc. The firm has alleged that, based on a 2005 contract it signed
with the city regarding possible repair or replacement of Grand
Marais’ municipal swimming pool, a breach of contract will exist if
the city takes part in construction of a new community center or any
facility that includes an aquatics center, and does not utilize
Burbach’s services. Because of those legal threats, the city has not
taken part in any planning sessions regarding the community center.
The resolution not only states that the city disputes Burbach’s
claims that any action means a breach of contract, but it affirms the
city’s “desire to support the Cook County community center’s
future operations and maintenance…in an annual amount not to exceed
the $156,000 average annual net operating loss the city incurs in
operating and maintaining the city’s municipal swimming pool.”
It was that part of the resolution that caused some discussion. Mayor
Larry Carlson said he was not comfortable including the $156,000
figure in the resolution. He said, “This says we support construction
of a community center, and I don’t. I’m not in support of this,”
Councilor Tim Kennedy said the resolution is designed simply to move

In light of continued dry and windy conditions, the U.S. Forest Service will implement campfire restrictions in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) on the Superior National Forest.
Beginning Saturday, May 19, 2012, campfires, charcoal or wood-burning camp stoves will be allowed only between 7 pm and midnight within the entire BWCAW.
Use of gas and propane cook stoves is allowed at any time of day.
For details regarding current conditions on the Superior National Forest, please check with one of the Forest offices or visit the Forest web site at: www.fs.usda.gov/superior.
