Storyteller & Dancer Nkan 12:20- 12:40pm 

In Nigerian Yoruba culture, one of the greatest traditional art forms is the talking drum. Talking drums were used in ritual performances, ceremonies, and for communication and could not be played by women. They can be used as a song accompaniment and aids in telling stories that portray important life-lessons and guidance. This Nigerian talking drum is a metaphor for AWỌ’s calling of people within hearing range to come and hear the stories of the diverse performers at the Drums In The Park Huemanity salon series talking about social justice, inclusion and community making.
