Atumpan: Rhythm of Life

June 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Atumpan for a spirited and moving program of world music, folklore and dance led by The Talking Drums. The Talking Drums interpret the tones and rhythms of African languages. Accompanied by The Talking Drums and storytelling, the program will explore the cultural and historical traditions of Jonkonnu. The program is participatory and uses art, often music, to transcend culture, class and disabilities in order to bring together a stronger sense of community.
