Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance Ensemble presents Thee Awakening
Thee Awakening showcases the different cultures, rituals and traditions of various ethnic groups reigning from the Ivory Coast and Guinea, West Africa. It focuses on a woman, Adjoua Kouassi, who allowed herself to be stripped completely from her African roots upon relocating to America. The event takes the audience on her journey through self realization and surrendering to her truth as a woman.
Each dance and beat of the drum has an enlivening resonance of the beauty and power form of women and how this is cultivated from childhood to womanhood. This show will encourage people of all colors, creeds and backgrounds to face their darkness and therefore, walk in the light.
