Dance & Drum Ensemble
Your continued support allows us to continue to bring the culture to you...
As we continue to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2014, we will continue to seek the contributions of our generous supporters. Although the current economic status has presented us with a few challenges, we believe that our community is still filled with generous individuals that believe in the necessity of preservation of African tradition and arts.
KoumanKe'le African Dance & Drum Ensemble is stepping into a new groove Houston and WE NEED YOUR HELP in order to continue to bring greater African dance and drum programming to our region. Your support in 2012-13 enabled us to hold the 4th Annual Kipekee African Diaspora Dance & Drum Festival featuring world-renowned artists, create a junior performance ensemble and workshop series (free to local youth), to travel, learn and teach more great rhythms, all while engaging in new collaborations… We have even bigger plans for the end of our 2013-14 season!
With your support, we can step up Houston's African dance action and contribute even more to our cultural arts landscape. KoumanKe'le' African Dance & Drum Ensemble is committed to enriching communities and lives in the Houston area and beyond, with spirited, traditional dancing and drumming but we need your help to sustain and offer more cultural workshops, performances, outreach, and training.
