Kankouran West African Dance Company Performance of Circle of Praise

This acclaimed performance by the KanKouran West African Dance Company takes the audience on a spiritual journey using praise and celebration dances from the African diaspora as their guide. The dances in this production showcase the complexity of healing and spiritual connection through “Testify and the Djinafoli” (dances drawing on West African dance traditions), “I’m Going Back Home” (inspired by African-American spiritual practices), Shango (drawing on Afro-Caribbean spiritual traditions), and Mandiani and Sabar (both coming full circle back to West African dance forms).
