Masankho Banda Performance
April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Masankho Banda is an accomplished dancer, drummer and choreographer from Malawi. Using performing arts, Masankho motivates and inspires people of all ages to work together for peace, social justice and cultural understanding. He has personal experience of living under a totalitarian government where his father was imprisoned in 1980 for his efforts to maintain democracy and economic stability in Malawi. In the seventh year of his father’s twelve-year detention, 25-year old Masankho was forced to leave Malawi. In 1997, Masankho started Ucandanc African Healing Arts to bring his passion for dance and storytelling to communities around the world. In 2001, Masankho was awarded the Unsung Hero of Compassion by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
