Blurring the lines between culture, tradition & performance, Ilé Ìlù | House of Drums is a place to become immersed in Afro-descendent culture live in NYC. Featuring world-class artists from the African music Diaspora, a Yoruba market, Ancestor & Ifa shrines, art+visuals, plus DJs + food/bar. The Òtúrá Rigbè Temple in Queens becomes a traditional village bringing together traditionalists and lovers of music & culture from across the vast NYC community and Afro-descendent culture – from West-African/Yoruba Ifa, to Ghana/Akan, Brazilian Candomble, Palo Congo, Division 21, Haitian Vodoun, Garifuna, Santeria, Trinidadian Sango, Rastafarian – all these expressions of African culture are ALIVE and vibrant in NYC. However, these different communities have been somewhat isolated and their incredible musical traditions. Ilé Ìlù | House of Drums celebrates these traditions in a setting organically connected to traditional (Isese) culture.
