Dear Cumbe Community,
I’m writing with great excitement to invite you to support us at an incredibly promising moment. Three years after losing our original studio to demolition and high-rise development, Cumbe has just re-opened in a beautiful new space in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. We are thrilled to be at RestorationART, a dynamic creative complex where we’re creating an enduring home for the rich and exhilarating world of dance and drumming from Africa and its diaspora. This is where you come in!
Cumbe needs all of our friends to realize our vision – a lively center full of dance, music, laughter and community where everyone can immerse themselves in the joy of movement from West Africa, the Caribbean, Brazil and more. With our community by our side, we can make the joy and vitality of African-rooted dance available to everyone – regardless of economic means.
Your contribution is crucial to Cumbe as we champion African/Diaspora culture as a vibrant legacy for people of African descent and as an exuberant source of power, spirit and knowledge for all! Thank you for supporting Cumbe!
Jimena Martinez and the Cumbe team
