Drumfolk is inspired by the Stono Rebellion of 1739, a little-known event in American history that transformed the African experience in America. This program will include excerpts from Drumfolk, combined with Step Afrika’s award-winning lecture-demonstration on the African-American percussive dance style of stepping. Full performance of Drumfolk to be performed Friday, April 3 at 8 pm.
