“Drums and Dance Traditions from the Ivory Coast”
Kotchegna Dance Company
7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 18th 2018 at Historic Untermyer Park
The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is pleased to present “Drums and Dance Traditions from the Ivory Coast” performed by the Kotchegna Dance Company on Saturday, August 18th at 7:30 p.m. at Untermyer Park.
The Kotchegna Dance Company will delight, teach, and inspire our audience with the joyful dances of the Ivory Coast! The colorful clothing, exuberant song, vibrant dancing, and the exciting rhythms of djembe and doundoun drums will sweep the audience into a powerful experience of West African village life, with dancing, a call-and-response, drum solos, and a finale that will not be forgotten.
This definitely is another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council World Fest evening under the stars!
