About Duniya Dance and Drum Company

Duniya Dance and Drum Company is a South Asian and West African company based in the San Francisco Bay Area. For 15 years, our mission has been to cultivate respect for traditional forms, foster cultural exchange, effect social justice and engage in community building. We perform and teach traditional and innovative performance pieces from Guinea, West Africa and Punjab, India.

The word duniya means “world” in a wide array of languages. Duniya’s work embodies this word, exploring the forces that brought the company together; colonization, globalization, immigration, art, dance, music and love. Learn more and sign up for our classes at
