Audience members at Irving Arts Center were delighted when Bandan Koro gave a performance of authentic West African music and dance on May 4.
Bandan Koro, which in the West African language Malinke means “under the tree,” is a local performing arts group that promotes awareness and respect for West African culture in the DFW area through education and performance. Their performance Saturday used music and dance to tell the story of the African Diaspora, the diffusion of African culture in the new world.
