The Center for Traditional Music and Dance (CTMD) celebrates the dance traditions that have been birthed, cultivated, and perpetuated in the Bronx. This year’s Heritage Sunday spotlights the various contributions of the people from the borough, who are not only connected through community, but through shared culture and traditions.

The Bambara Drum and Dance Ensemble brings West African traditions to the stage in this high-octane program, alongside the Afro-Puerto Rican traditions of Bombazo Dance Company and the Chief Joseph Chatoyer Dance Company representing the Garifuna community. The afternoon will be rounded out by legendary hip-hop crew Full Circle Souljahs. See why they call it “the Boogie Down Bronx.”

Presented in association with the Center for Traditional Music and Dance and the Center for Art, Tradition and Cultural Heritage

Bambara Drum & Dance; Bombazo Dance Company; and Full Circle Productions is made possible in part by The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
