Duke Performances

Black Atlantic

The rich music of the African diaspora introduces us to the journeys of dynamic, ingenious, and resilient people. Much of the world’s most original and influential music is the result of Africans preserving ancestral traditions in radically new conditions, places, and cultures. Duke Performances presents its third installment of Black Atlantic spotlighting gifted demonstrators of this experience hailing from Colombia, the Gambia, United Kingdom, Cuba, Trinidad, Kenya, Congo, and the United States.
