Night Out in the Parks: Amazing Africa (August 1)

August 1, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Gately Park

This program features the music and dances of the Manding Empire, the largest in African history. The dynamic performers of Ayodele take you on a journey to West Africa without leaving Chicago. Their high-energy show features acrobatics, authentic African attire, and native instrumentation. The narration and storytelling centered around the mystical city of Timbuktu provides an in-depth view of the rich West African heritage, languages, and traditions. With an overall message of love, peace, and respect you will dance away from this experience feeling empowered.

This FREE show is presented in partnership with the Chicago Park District as part of its Night Out in the Parks program. All Night Out in the Parks performances are family-friendly, free, open to the public, and will take place outdoors (weather permitting).
