The nation’s largest festival dedicated to African dance and music returns for its 42nd year, under the leadership of artistic director Abdel R. Salaam. This beloved annual tradition is a jubilant celebration of culture from Africa and its diaspora.
This year, DanceAfrica offers a taste of the rhythm, movement, and spirit of Rwanda.
