DAY OF REMEMBRANCE/DAY OF HEALING with Francis Awe and the Nigerian Talking Drum Ensemble
This show, which is normally performed in November, is returning again, by popular demand, to the Live Arts Los Angeles (LALA) stage.   The Nigerian Talking Drum Ensemble is a cultural group that educates its audience about Nigerian tradition and culture through the use of music, song, and dance.  Though the performances are entertaining, there is always a moral message intertwined in each individual piece.
The show consist of the Master Nigerian drummer Francis Awe and dancer Omowale Orisayomi leading their group and students in the drumming and dancing of Nigeria that they have learned over the past years.  This is also a performance about growth, rebirth, and the evolution of the human Spirit to always rise above adversity and to soar.  There are performances by the Nigerian Talking Drum Ensemble as well as student performances to bring out the functional aspect of African music and dance which is to transform oneself, one's family, one's community, and this global family we call the world.  In the show you will see traditional dances like Sango and Sabada, as well as riveting personal performances by different members of the class, revealing their triumph over adversity in their lives.
Francis Awe states, "I feel that my mission in life is not only to make the Dundun (Talking Drum) a universal instrument, but also to transmit the family aspect of African life to all people of the universe.  My music goes beyond entertainment.  I am interested in using this medium to unify people of all races and colors."
