IMAC TO HOST AN EVENING OF
TRADITIONAL AFRICAN DRUMMING AND DANCE
WITH

OLATUNJI AND HIS DRUMS OF PASSION


FRIDAY, March 30, 2001 at 9PM

TICKETS:  $30.00 General Public 
/ $22.50 IMAC Members

On Friday, March 30th at 9PM the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host an evening of traditional African drumming and dance with OLATUNJI AND HIS DRUMS OF PASSION.

OLATUNJI’s music is a profound celebration of African life, with songs that herald the many personal and social events central to all cultures.  His troupe, Drums of Passion, express these images with a vitality and force that is the benchmark by which all great African performers today must be measured.  

They utilize a variety of traditional African instruments and authentic costumes in their brilliant shows.  The songs come from all parts of Africa, including a harvest song from Olatunji’s homeland, Nigeria, a rain celebration from Zaire, and others from Liberia, Senegal, and the Congo.  The great dancers in Olatunji’s troupe imitate the movements of many different living creatures, as well as pure expressions of the human spirit.

Tickets for this performance are $30.00 general public ($22.50 for IMAC Members) and can be obtained by calling IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater from noon to 6PM, Tuesdays to Fridays, and after 2PM on the day of the show.
