Welcome to ZEYBRAH
ZEYBRAH is a not-for-profit, community based, cultural organization which creates quality programs for (a) cultural exchange between people of diverse cultures, and (b) experiential learning in the arts. ZEYBRAH draws its resources from cultures around the world, with emphasis on the cultural expressions of the peoples of Africa and the Caribbean. Our goal is to share with audiences the vitality and beauty of these cultural heritages in ways that are educational, entertaining and uplifting! We emphasize the inter-active components of our programs, and cater to all ages with programs specifically designed for the entire family.
There are two primary areas of programming:
(1) Art Expositions, which include art festivals, live performances of dance, music and drama, multi-media art exhibits, video and film screenings.
(2) Training and Education in the Arts, which include workshops in music, dance, drama and visual arts, lecture-demonstrations, panel discussions, educational trips, and communications-media training.
ZEYBRAH has been organizing quality folkloric events since 1984 with artists that are top in their fields. Through our well-researched and innovative presentations, folkloric expressions from places such as Cuba, Brazil, the Caribbean, U.S.A., Nigeria and Senegal come alive!
