Royal Drummers & Dancers of Burundi

Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts

3680 Walnut Street University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia PA 19104
  • Wednesday October 3rd 2012

In “a celebration of ability” that is “sheer pleasure” (New York Times), the Royal Drummers & Dancers of Burundi return to the U.S. for the first time since their sold-out 2006 tour. Considered one of the world’s greatest percussion ensembles, they have performed in the same way for centuries, passing down traditions and techniques from father to son, originally performing exclusively for Burundian kings. Shrouded in ancient legend and mystery, this troupe channels the energy and creative spirit of a nation, and with complex rhythms, agile dance and attuned precision, the “Burundi beats” of this ensemble will take audiences on a thrilling, adrenaline-pumping journey.
