KanKouran West African Dance Company introduces the essence of traditional African dancing and drumming to audiences, enriches American cultural heritage through the integration of authentic West African arts, and promotes intercultural understanding. This annual MLK Day concert celebrates over 35 years of fulfilling our mission of “giving back that which was lost.”

 

KanKouran’s repertory brilliantly reflects the excellence and artistry that is so widely associated with the company. Over the years, the artistic and musical directors have met the great challenge of adapting traditional African dancing and drumming to a Western performance context all while communicating the rich and complex history of West Africa with their technical prowess, energy, and grace.
