Kulu Mele, an African drumming and dance ensemble, will be performing in the ETC Auditorium on Friday, December 1 from 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm. The performance is sponsored by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and the Fusion club.
The night’s entertainment will feature five drummers, four dancers, and a vocalist. Kulu Mele performed for Pope Francis when he came to Philadelphia during the World Meeting of Families in 2015.
“Kulu Mele is a well-known and very talented group,” said Madelene Pierre, Fusion President. “We knew the Holy Family community would appreciate such an amazing performance. Their culture, their music, their dance is so amazing and we wanted others to experience that also.”
The event is free to the HFU Community and $12.00 per person to the outside community. Please register for tickets no later than November 29 by clicking here.
“The audience can expect an amazing show,” said Dr. Nicole Stokes-DuPass, Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness & Diversity and Professor of Sociology. “I have seen Kulu Mele perform at several venues in the city and they never disappoint. They are planning several drummers and dancers, a vocalist and an array of beautiful costumes. The event will celebrate the African diaspora and the traditional music and dance from Africa and the Caribbean. We cannot wait to share this with our campus and community members.”
