Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater invites you to join us in celebration through traditional West African music and dance. In the Bambara language of Mali, “Jeh Kulu” means “community” and this is exactly what we hope to build with our audiences! Founded in 1993, Jeh Kulu brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to honor the joyous traditions of West Africa.
Our vision is to raise cultural awareness, create a sense of community, and, at the same time, have fun! Jeh Kulu is comprised of 20+ talented artists who share traditional rhythms and dances from the countries of Guinea, Senegal and Mali, West Africa.
Jeh Kulu is comprised of several well-known Master Artists from Guinea, West Africa, and many highly-trained American Artists, with extensive experience in the art form. We are also proud to include an Apprentice Company, and an ever growing Junior Company!
