What happens when two distant and vastly sophisticated musical cultures converge in an ongoing creative endeavor? In Duniya Dance and Drum Company the result is an electrifying conversation between the West African traditions of Guinea and the North Indian traditions of Punjab. Founded in 2007 by esteemed cultural activists Joti Singh and Bongo Sidibe, San Francisco’s Duniya is dedicated to cultivating respect for traditional forms, fostering cultural exchange, effecting social justice and building community. Characterized by high-energy performances, Duniya simultaneously pays homage to and innovates within traditional forms to explore challenges faced in today’s world.
