About the Event

Join us for an unforgettable night of interactive dialogue, rhythmic beats, and immersive explorations at “Tambufest: Embodied Research, Resilience, and Healing” presented in partnership with Dr. Deborah A. Thomas, Junior W edderburn,and the Barnes Foundation. Esteemed anthropologist and 2024 Guggenheim Fellow, Dr. Deborah A. Thomas and filmmaker and percussionist, Junior Wedderburn will facilitate a collective exploration into the practices of Kumina and other rituals that form connections with our ancestors. At the heart of the event is the tradition of “reasoning”, where community members come together to discuss important issues before releasing them through Kumina drumming. Enjoy some light bites, beverages, and local art in our gallery space. For more information, visit the link in our bio! Presentations begin at 5:30 and we hope to see you here.”
