Echoes of Africa
Echoes of Africa Drumming Ensemble draws from the ancient and yet still very contemporary folkloric musical traditions of western and southern Africa, as well as the occasional foray into the Afro-Latin musical traditions of the Americas—all cultures where percussion-based music serves as a central fixture in life’s experiences. Over twenty years of performance highlights include for the Alzheimer’s Association of Kansas City, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Travense Living of Olathe, Association of Lutheran Church Musicians National Conference, Atonement Lutheran Church in Overland Park, Kansas, First Lutheran Church in Leawood, Kansas, and several private parties and events receptions throughout the Kansas City region.
Join Echoes of Africa Drumming Ensemble at the City Market Park for a performance permeating with primal rhythmic energy, as all in attendance are treated to two exciting sets of drumming-based music from Africa and the Americas.
BRING YOUR CONGA, DJEMBE, SHAKER, or BELL, and join-in on the music making on ‘Cue!’, as each set wraps-up with an all-play celebration of Kansas City community drumming!
