Duniya Dance and Drum Company's mission is to cultivate respect for traditional forms, foster cultural exchange, effect social justice and engage in community building.
Formed in April 2007, Duniya Dance and Drum Company creates, performs, and teaches dance and music from Punjab, India, and Guinea, West Africa, as well as unique blends of these forms and beyond. The word duniya means “world” in a wide array of languages, including Punjabi, Arabic, Susu and Wolof. Duniya’s work embodies this word, as it explores the forces that have brought together the members of the company and their dance and drum styles, including, but not limited to, colonization, globalization, immigration, art, dance, music and love.
We are making an effort to pay our artists for gigs that have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis. Consider donating to support working artists during this challenging time.
