Incorporating ceremony, ritual, rhythm, and music, traditional African styles are as much a cornerstone of Sub-Saharan and West African cultures as they are a powerful and unique facet of the world. Not only are African ceremonies a powerful experience for the spectator, but it is also a symbol of solidarity and an important means of communication for the performers and their community.
