Drumsong African Ballet Theatre
Lincoln Center "Out of Doors"
August 11, 2007

Photographed by Angelo Rivera

New York Cool photographer Angelo Rivera was out-and-about when he shot these amazing images of the Drumsong African Theatre performing at Lincoln Center's "Out of Doors" Series.

Here is a quote from the Drumsong African Ballet Theatre website (drumsongsociety.com):

"...We Drum, We Dance, We Sing
And tell a story or two
From our soul, heart and mind
Just for you…

Bringing forward the griot memory
As representation of a people
400 years from the village

We are children of the middle passage

And we must tend to our gardens
Wherever they be ...." Rahman Ndiaye
