The Song & Dance of the Drum in Nature

With Gordy Onayemi Ryan and Zoë Ryan

July 27 - 31, 2022

The 30th Anniversary of Olatunji Music, Dance, and Culture at Hollyhock!
We will drum, dance and sing inside the iconic Olatunji Hall and outside in the circle of tall Fir trees, an experience in Nature to blow away the covid blues. Our journey includes music and dance brought by Olatunji and the Drums of Passion, rhythms of the Mandingue Culture, and Cuban Folkloric music. All are welcome, beginning to advanced- become one with the drum!
