Djoliba Don Drums and Dances at the
Children's Theatre of Charlotte
Children's Theatre of Charlotte is pleased to welcome Djoliba Don to our stage
February 25 - 27, 2005. Djoliba Don performs jembe, a West African
drumming and dance tradition that flourished during the Manding Empire, which
ruled along the Niger River during the 13th Century. Led by company
founder and artistic director Faisal Mustapha Salahuddin, more than half of the
company have been trained in West Guinea and seeks to foster greater
understanding and appreciation of African culture.
Praised by critics as "exciting, entertaining, educational and
exhilarating," the troupe's knowledge of the art form is matched by their
passion for bringing it to life. Audiences are invited to join in with
clapping, tapping and dancing of their own, making each Djoliba Don performance
a vibrant celebration and a unique cultural experience.

February 25, 7:30 pm
