The Magic of African Rhythms share the beauty and spirit of Kwanzaa through music and stories. The sounds of the balan and kora – griot instruments from West Africa – reconnect audiences to distant traditions. Kwanzaa is a seven-day festival that celebrates and teaches about the Seven Principles (Swahili: Nguzo Saba) of African culture which contribute to building and reinforcing family, community, and culture among African American people as well as Africans throughout the world African community. These values are: unity; self determination; collective work and responsibility; cooperative economics; purpose; creativity; and faith.
This program is FREE and open to the public.
