SOFTWARE BUG – please be advised that there is a software bug with The Events Calendar plugin affecting ONLY reoccuring events at different times on the same day. While displaying correctly, the links may only go to only  one time for the event listed for that day. We have been told the developer is working on this but no ETA has been provided for when it will be fixed. A temporary solution is to enter events separately vs using multiple event tool.

PNC Arts Alive presents Kulu Mele African Dance & Drum Ensemble

November 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

$20 – $30
Kulu Mele

PNC Arts Alive presents Kulu Mele African Dance & Drum Ensemble in Rite of Passage: Celebrating a boy’s emergence into manhood.

Founded in 1969 by the late Baba Robert “Ibikunle” Crowder, Kùlú Mèlé is the oldest continually-performing African dance and drum ensemble in the nation. Due to the pandemic, this is the first in-person anniversary performance since its sold-out 50th Anniversary celebration in 2019.

Kùlú Mèlé attracts diverse audiences of all ages, and is about educating the public and passing African Diaspora culture to the next generation. Several students from Omo Kulu Mele , the CHILDREN ENSEMBLE, ARE ALSO PART OF THE CAST. “Mama Dottie” and husband, Music Director Baba John “Wilk” Wilkie, who have been with Kùlú Mèlé since 1971, now welcome their daughter Fasina Wilkie, also a dancer, as the new executive director of the renowned ensemble.
