Drums and Dance of Burkina Faso | Captain William Spry Public Library | Friday, 09. February 2018

Join us for a live drumming and dance performance by Amadou Kienou and the Djeli Sira.

The group Djeli Sira (literally "the path of the griot") is composed of master drummers and dancers from the ancient Mandingo Empire of West Africa.

True to its name, Djeli Sira preserves the roots of the Malinke griot tradition. Through music, voice, and dance, they express the profound emotions associated with these ancient revered traditions. This cultural expression has a universal appeal and touches the hearts of audiences worldwide.

Ages 6-Adult
In partnership with the Africa Festival of Arts and Culture Society.

Can't attend? This event is also happening at Woodlawn Public Library on February 10 at 1:00pm:
