Ash� Cultural Arts Center is celebrating the powerful drums of Africa, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, India, Japan and the Mardi Gras Indians; and we want you there.
HAMID DRAKE (pictured above) heads the bill with his remarkable percussion prowess. Drake, an extraordinary jazz drummer and percussionist, was born in Monroe, Louisiana, but resides in Chicago. He spends much of his time traveling around the world for concerts and studio dates.
Joining him and electrifying the space will be drummers representing several countries known for their passionate rhythms.
This festive event will have you dancing, rocking and swaying into the night.
Tickets are only $20.
