From Africa to the World

Get closer to the Yoruba culture around the world with an African afternoon at the British Museum. Yoruba is one of the largest ethnic groups in west Africa, predominantly in Nigeria, which with the African Diaspora spreads its beliefs and cultures to many countries of the world.

The day includes film, storytelling and performances with a strong emphasis on Brazil, Cuba and Haiti, and presents the London Lucumi choir, capoeira by the group Kabula, Afro-Brazilian music with Adma and the Afoxés, Haitian drumming with Atissou Loko and an Orisha dance workshop led by dance instructor Melissa Blanco-Borelli.
