|Act||Contortion Dance Group|
The Bone-Breakers are from Conakry, Guinea in West Africa but currently live in Atlanta, Georgia. They met in a circus school in Guinea called the Centre d'Art Acrobatique Keita Fodeba, or Tinafan. They were first trained by the local director of the school, Ibrahima Bamba. They've been training for years and have always had a dream to be seen by the world, so they never gave up even when times were hard. They were discovered by Cedric Walker, the owner of the UniverSoul Circus, who hired a creator and professional contortionist trainer from South Africa, Prince Malatsi. Prince trained them and got them ready to travel, and they were hired by the UniverSoul Circus in the U.S. They traveled with UniverSoul Circus from 2017 to the end 2019. They are now working with another circus, Circo Hermanos Vazquez.
The group is composed of Norbert Tonguino, Mohamed Bangoura and Souleymane Soumah. They train every day for at least six hours. Seeing themselves on AGT is a blessing and going to the live show is a dream come true.
Bonebreakers' audition in Episode 1505 consisted of performing different contortion dance moves to DJ Snake ft Selena Gomez, Ozuna, Cardi B "Taki Taki". Howie Mandel, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes", sending them to the next round.
