African drums travel to the library

Come dance and drum with the Titambe West African Dance Ensemble at 4 p.m., Tues., July 5, at the Cloquet Public Library. The program is free of charge and open to all ages.

A great multi-generational program, performers will teach specific rhythms, dancing and drum techniques, featuring the dress and cultural protocols of West Africa. Between drumming and song, the program will include stories and history about Ghana and other African tribal cultures.

The event is part of the Library’s summer program, “One World, Many Stories,” sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System. For more information, call 879-1531.
