A group of eleven singers, dancers and musicians from the Zedashe Ensemble will be coming to the Twin Cities during the first week in April. Over the course of four days they will be giving two concerts, two dance workshops , and a music workshop (choice of singing or instrumental music); the workshops will be at Tapestry Folkdance Center. This will be a rare, if not unique, opportunity to see folklore from this region of the world performed by natives.
