Duke Performances

Black Atlantic

In March 2019, Duke Performances introduces some of the most musically fabled regions of the world to Durham with Black Atlantic, a weeklong festival celebrating the music of Africa and the African diaspora. This season, Black Atlantic returns to Motorco (and adds one concert at Baldwin Auditorium) in search of more cultural connections and imaginative hybrids, with artists from South Africa, Congo, Uganda, Mali/Ivory Coast/France, Mauritania, Cuba, Niger, New York, and Brazil.
