KAKILAMBE!

The late Baba Chuck Davis- founder of Dance Africa, would have been well pleased! Despite unseasonably chilly weather last Saturday,  Kakilambe ,  the African American Cultural Center’s   dance and performance company and their talented guests, put on a great show in honor of Baba Davis!

The featured artists  included local Reggae star Neville Francis and Riddim Posse,  Griffin Brady, The Unity Band featuring the show-stopping Denzell Ward;    the amazing Ghanian troupe featuring  Al Hassan Yawuza, Christian Horla Kutte, David E. Nyadezor, and Esther Dordro.The drumming and dancing performed by Kakilambe, under the direction of Lynette Simmons and Eric Ansuade, proved why they were the headliners!

Tina Washington-Abubeker is the Executive Director of the   African American Cultural Center. Watch for more exciting things to come from this  legendary institution!
