Tragic. I think I saw him perform last year at the Ethnic Dance Festival. He will be missed. From the Chronicle.

Famed dancer dies as car hit head on
Other driver was drunk, cops say

World renowned Congolese dancer and drummer Malonga Casquelourd was killed in Oakland early Sunday morning when a suspected drunken driver crashed head-on into his car while going the wrong way on a one-way street, police said.

Casquelourd, who was 55, was on his way home from a niece's graduation ceremony shortly after 2 a.m. when a Toyota 4Runner traveling the wrong way in front of 1 Lakeside Drive slammed into his 1972 Mercedes-Benz sedan.

This is very sad. I remember him from the first year I saw the EDF, and many times after that.
