Exploring the vast and vivacious culture of the African Diaspora.
Sankofa is an Akan Ghanaian word meaning to go or return and retrieve what was lost. Uniting Voices Chicago continues its commitment to rigorous performance education and visibility of authentic Africana music as we elevate the next generation of global thinkers. Our concert celebration will include music and freedom movements from Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Trinidad and Tobago and South Africa, plus a rich legacy of African American music from the United States. Special guests include master djembekhan Sekou Conde and renowned soprano Audrey DuBois Harris.
