The County College of Morris (CCM) Black Student Union and the Office of Special Events will present the Sankofa Drum and Dance Ensemble on Tuesday, March 26 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Student Community Center lounge. The event features internationally acclaimed and award-winning sculptor, master drummer and teacher Maxwell Kofi Donkor.
Kofi has been drumming and performing for more than 30 years, learning as a child at his grandfather’s knee. By the time he was a teenager, he was being commissioned to perform in the Folklore Ensemble of Ghana. The Sankofa Drum and Dance Ensemble has played with such nationally known drummers as Babatunde Olatunji and Mickey Hart. Kofi’s performances generate the community spirit of sharing, oneness, joy and love, where both audience members and performers are involved.
