Ayodele Drum and Dance

Chicago-based performing artist collective Ayodele Drum and Dance will be featured in a Shangri La Residency from February 14-23, 2020. “Ayodele” is a Yoruba word that means “joy in the home” and the sister-circle collective of performing artists fosters community from a feminine perspective through diasporic African drum and dance, using the artform to heal, educate and motivate in an unending circle firmly rooted in joy.

Don’t miss this chance to dance to live percussion! Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design artists-in-residence, Ayodele Drum and Dance, will hold a high-energy workshop on West African dance. “Ayodele” is a Yoruba word that means “joy in the home” and this diverse sister-circle collective of performing artists based in Chicago uses African drum and dance to heal, educate and motivate in an unending circle firmly rooted in joy. People of all ages and levels of experience are welcome!

Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in and be prepared to dance barefoot. Bring a water bottle.
