Vermont's 19th Annual Dance and Drum Festival, Nov 7-10, 2013
Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater invites you to enjoy 4 days and nights of West African dance and music in Burlington, Vermont!
Our festival includes internationally renowned artists from Guinea, Senegal and Mali teaching workshops in Djembe, Sabar, and Kutiro. Highlights include Balafon, Krin and Women’s Sangban classes as well as an evening concert featuring Jeh Kulu with special guest artists, and dance party at a local Burlington club.
We are preparing a great show for you again this year. This very special production will feature our very own Ibrahima Bangoura as a young drummer on a journey to find a master teacher. He persists as many men laugh him away and despite his parents urging him to stay in school. It is a story of a young boy's quest to become a young man, and of the enduring power of arts has when it captures the heart of an artist.
Tickets will be available through the Flynn Box Office. Tickets to the finale performance on November 9 are also available through online registration.
