Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance Ensemble

 Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance Ensemble was created in Winter 2009 as an outlet to study and share experiences associated with African culture and history to the community through the medium of dance, music and specialized presentations. 

Bandan Koro is a Malinke term meaning “under the tree” and traditionally, the large trees of Africa were not only sources of food and other necessities but were central meeting places for the community. Bandan Koro has been featured performers in Dance Africa Dallas, Atlanta and Denver and has performed at various celebrations and festivals, such as the 2017 Dallas Arts Month Press Conference through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs. Bandan Koro was also a featured company in the 2017-2018 Elevator Project season sponsored by the AT&T Performing Arts Center and Office of Cultural Affairs. 

This 22 member ensemble of musicians, singers and dancers teach multiple classes throughout the week, present specialized educational programs and entertains various audiences throughout the year. Bandan Koro continues to foster values of love, pride, cultural engagement and excellence within the community.
