Join Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater in celebrating traditional West African music and dance. In the Bambara language of Mali, “Jeh Kulu” means “community” and this is exactly what they hope to build with audiences! Founded in 1993, Jeh Kulu brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to honor the joyous traditions of West Africa. Their vision is to raise cultural awareness, create a sense of community, and, at the same time, have fun! Jeh Kulu is comprised of 20+ talented artists, including several well-known Master Artists from Guinea, West Africa, and many highly-trained American Artists, who share traditional rhythms and dances from the countries of Guinea, Senegal, and Mali, West Africa. They are also proud to include an Apprentice Company and an ever-growing Junior Company!
