Strathmore is proud to welcome back Step Afrika!, the first professional company dedicated to the African American tradition of stepping. This performance begins with a showcase of the region’s finest step squads featuring lightning-fast footwork, percussive chants, and incredible synchronicity. The premiere of the Strathmore-commissioned Drumfolk follows, which honors the heritage of step and places the evolution of this vibrant art form in its historical context. Tracing step’s roots to the African American percussive traditions of patting juba, hambone, ring shout, and tap, Drumfolk reflects on the harsh realities of the American South and celebrates the fortitude of the slaves who practiced these transcendent musical forms.
