Ngoma; meaning both drum and dance in Swahili, was formed in 1995 by a group of young performing artists. This group of youth united with the community, to educate, empower and embrace their audiences with the majesty of who they were, who they are, and the limitlessness of who they could become. This generation of young artist’s remains committed to continue the work of sharing their African ancestry through the musical discipline and skill development of drum and dance with the community. The ensemble promotes mentorship within the art community by organizing young professional artists to teach and choreograph. This inter-generational interaction builds leadership skills and also provides opportunities for talented individuals to create and host workshops to showcase their own interpretation and style of traditional compositions displaying a blend of the ancient and modern
