Binghamton University Nukporfe African Dance and Drumming Ensemble performanceTweet
A concert of African dance and drumming, directed by Associate Professor and Music Department Chair James Burns, will be presented by the Nukporfe Ensemble at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, in FA-Watters. The presentation will include African music performed by a full ensemble of drummers and dancers. African dance-drumming typically juxtaposes several art forms together, including storytelling, pantomime, oral history and community wisdom, and is an excellent way to introduce authentic African culture to anyone who may have little understanding of modern Africa. Tickets are $5 per person at the door. For more information, call 607-777-2592, go online or become a fan on Facebook. This concert is sponsored by the Binghamton University Music Department.
