Kulu Mele African Dance & Drum Ensemble: Ogun & the People

Traditional West African dance and drumming take centerstage as Philadelphia's Kulu Mele makes its Annenberg Center debut in the commissioned work, Ogun & the People. This full-length production explores the Afro-Cuban/Yoruba parable of the deity Ogun, a warrior and protector who abandons the other gods, wreaking terrible violence and famine on the world. Through vibrant dance and energetic percussion, Kulu Mele celebrates its 50th anniversary in this very special world premiere.
