"Lufuki: The Origins of Funk" - Kenneth Rainin Foundation

“Lufuki: The Origins of Funk”

A new site-specific dance creation rooted in a dialogue in dance between traditional Congolese movement, Afro Urban dance styles, and Hip Hop. The project is a collaboration between Oakland-based Fua Dia Congo and Paris-based Ambiance Facil and seeks to tell a story about the resilience of African movement across space and time by bridging the worlds of traditional and contemporary African dance and hip hop.
