Farafina Kan (literally translated as the sound of Africa) is a Washington D.C.-based professional performing arts company dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the history, integrity and representation of traditional African drumming and dancing. Having been reared and engaged in the West African Performing Arts for the majority of their lives and led by two brothers - Founder and Artistic Director, Mahiri Fadjimba Keita and Managing Director, Diallo Sumbry, Farafina Kan is taking traditional West African drumming and dancing to new heights.


Whether performing traditional rhythms, songs and dances; or seamlessly fusing traditional rhythms and songs with contemporary arrangements, Farafina Kan always ROCKS THE HOUSE!


Tickets are $15 / $10 for members and children 12 and under.
