In recognition of African-American History Month in February, Fort Bend County Libraries’ Cinco Ranch Branch Library will present a special musical performance of African Hand-Drumming. Guests can enjoy the traditional tribal rhythms and spiritual gifts of West African djembe drumming in a special performance by Gregg “Jebada” Powell, founder and director of the Joy of Djembe Drumming Ensemble.

Powell will talk about the history of the instrument and the culture of the people who originally produced it. He will perform a variety of rhythms to demonstrate the influences of different countries and traditions.
