The Magic of African Rhythm take the PLAYlist stage on June 7th

The exhilarating sight and sound of Djembe Fire! – men and women drumming, dancing, and singing their signature welcome to the audience. Company members regularly travel to various regions of Africa learning new instruments, gaining new insights. This experience constantly enhances the group’s artistry and scope. The vibrant rhythms of Africa’s drums, dance, melodic instruments, costume, song and drama across the colorful spectrum of the entire continent will be displayed and the audience will be pulled in to participate and contribute to the community art making.
