From a tiny country in Central Africa comes one of the most gifted and celebrated percussion ensembles in the world — Royal Drummers and Dancers of Burundi. Their dance and drumming performances are based on ancient sacred traditions that have been passed down from father to son for centuries, yet these distinctive early rhythms sound as modern as any contemporary beat. The thunderous drum sound — the “Burundi beat”— has gained the rapt attention of audiences worldwide and influenced popular Western contemporary artists like Joni Mitchell, Adam and the Ants, and Bow Wow Wow.

Originally used exclusively for ceremonial occasions, the distinctive drums are made from hollowed tree trunks and animal skins. Come witness ancient Burundi culture with its thunderous percussive rhythms and mesmerizing movements brought to the stage by this remarkable ensemble!
