Dig down into your soul and journey to the crossroads. This is an evening where the roots of the African Diaspora reveal their magic through music, dance, and a very deep groove. National Slam Competition winner Regie Gibson's powerful spoken word poetry is accompanied by the sweet jazz melodies of the Neon JuJu band. Alvin Ailey dancer Leslie Salmon Jones' spiritual Afro-Caribbean movement is countered by the rhythmic power of master Ghanaian dancer Nani Agbeli. The nasty funky grooves of the Sugarfoot Band are balanced by the unique beauty of the mbira instrument from Zimbabwe. This is a celebration of the spiritual side of Africa, its history, and its culture through the diaspora, and is a rare opportunity to catch a dizzying array of African and Afro-Latin music and dance under one roof, on one stage!

Come early for the Arts & Community Reception!

Springstep - 98 George P. Hassett Dr. Medford, MA
