The nation's largest festival dedicated to African dance returns for its 37th year, welcoming Madagascar-based music and dance troupe Bakomanga.

This year, the spotlight shines on Bakomanga, making its US debut. This Madagascar-based music and dance troupe embraces a rich variety of indigenous cultural forms, using jubilant drum- and accordion-driven music and movement to honor its ancestors, usher in the harvest, and preserve tradition. Catch them and select New York State artists in the annual Memorial Day weekend performances, hosted by Baba Chuck Davis. Ago! Amee!

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
