Step Afrika!: Drumfolk

October 28, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

(713) 227-4772

info@performingartshouston.org

Inspired by the Stono Rebellion of 1739, Drumfolk explores a little-known event in history that would forever transform African American life and culture. When Africans lost the right to use their drums, the beats found their way into the bodies of the people. New percussive forms took root, leading to new performance traditions, like ring shout, tap, and stepping.
