An invigorating performance filled with the rhythms of West Africa, featuring Assistant Professor of Music John Dankwa PhD '18 and Assistant Professor of Dance Iddi Saaka joined by students in West African music and dance classes.

Saaka is spreading the joy and importance of African dance to the local community through a series of workshops for people over the age of 55. “We’re getting older but that doesn’t mean we can’t do these movements and feel uninhibited,” said one participant. Read Professor Teaches African Drumming and Dance to Local Community in The Wesleyan Connection.
