Binghamton University's Nukporfe African Dance and Drumming Ensemble, directed by Prof. James Burns, will be performing on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 7 p.m. in Watter's Theater in the Fine Arts Building at Binghamton University.
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. It is an excellent way to introduce authentic African culture to anyone who may have little understanding of modern Africa.
