West African dance and drum company Jeh Kulu fires up Chandler Music Hall

Sunday, March 11, 4 p.m.—RANDOLPH—Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater will bring the high-spirited energy of traditional West African music and dance to the Chandler Center for the Arts for a special matinee performance for families on Sunday, March 11, at 4 p.m.

Founded in 1993, the Vermont-based ensemble is celebrating 25 years of bringing the traditional rhythms and movement of the African nations of Guinea, Senegal, and Mali to rapt audiences throughout New England. The company’s upcoming performance will be its first ever at Chandler.

Jeh Kulu means “community” in the Bambara language of Mali. The dance and drum group’s mission is “to raise cultural awareness, create a sense of community, and, at the same time, have fun.”

Jeh Kulu is comprised of more than 20 talented artists, including internationally renowned drum and dance masters from Guinea, as well as a roster of highly trained American performers.

Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater will liven up the Chandler Music Hall with a specially priced performance for families and children of all ages.
