Now in its 34th year, DanceAfrica, galvanized by the vision of Artistic Director Chuck Davis, unites dance companies from around the world to celebrate the cultural vitality of Africa and its diaspora.

This year, in conjunction with a citywide celebration of Cuban culture and art, BAM welcomes Santiago de Cuba-based Ballet Folklórico Cutumba, masters of the island’s vibrant Afro-Cuban and Haitian popular styles. A favorite at the DanceAfrica 2002 celebration, Cutumba returns to BAM with a compelling program infused with the sultry rhythms of the Cuban gagá and son.

They will be joined by Kùlú Mèlé African Dance and Drum Ensemble, Bambara Drum and Dance Ensemble, and Brooklyn’s very own BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble for a program that promises to inspire.
