Traditional Songs & Dances From Africa
This album of traditional African song and dance comes from the Adzido Pan African Dance Ensemble. Adzido were founded in 1984 by George Dzikunu, Artistic Director. Their aim was to promote the richly diverse heritage of black Africa by presenting traditional dance and music with modern theatre technology, enabling the authenticity of Africa to be presented with integrity and relevance to western cultures. Adzido Pan African Dance Ensemble performed at home and abroad to stimulate and enrich a worldwide audience with the dynamism and vibrancy of African dance and drumming. All productions combined a variety of dance styles from across the African continent, hence ‘Pan-African.’ The group gave their last performance in 2005.
