About The Event

Black Space: A Sankofa Music Series is an experience that relates sound to space. Blackness names a relation to the social world, but it can also name a relation people forge with each other, and to the space we make for ourselves. Music is perhaps the most meaningful way we offer to ourselves messages for how to live through this relation. This series evokes the sounds that might emanate in spaces dedicated to this question. It asks us what we hear when we listen for each other, for Black life, in Black space.

Grounded in the traditions of the Djembe Orchestra, Kweku  Sumbry is a  multi-percussionist from Washington, DC.  With the djembe, drumset,  and  a multitude of West African Percussion instruments, Kweku is bringing  forth a new sound to the jazz world. He began his studies as a toddler  under the tutelage of Mahiri Fadjimba Keita, Mamady Keita, and Djiali  Djimo Kouyate.
