the scoop:

The Karshner Museum presents a Culture and Arts festival feturing Gansango, an African drumming, percussion, dance and cultural group. Traditional dance from Benin will be featured, including Vodoun ritualistic dances, regional social ceremony dances, such as the Chenkoumé dance from Savalou, and royal historical dances such as the Zehli dance from the late 1800s.

During the day at the Karshner Museum, Gansango will conduct a drumming workshop and a dance workshop both for all ages. In addition, arts of West Africa will be explored and families can make projects to take home all day. Projects based on adrinka, adira, and mud cloth fabric design and other fun projects will celebrate the artistic splendor of the West African region.
