In celebration of Reggae Month the National Gallery of Jamaica presents a performance by Tribe Sankofa on February 28, 2021 for its Last Sundays event. The virtual programme will premiere on both our YouTube and IGTV platforms at 1:30pm.
Tribe Sankofa is a performing arts collective brought together by Fabian Thomas, A vibrant and eclectic group of multi-talented performers they have combined their artistry to add an exciting new dimension to the performing arts landscape both locally and internationally. Their niche is “…borrowed and original spoken word/poetry, soulful song-styling uniquely blended with other visual and performing arts”.
Tribe Sankofa has shared their unique offerings in diverse spaces including the Lignum Vitae Awards, Gungo Walk Alternative Music and Arts Festival, Arts in the Park and the Investiture of the Poet Laureate of Jamaica to name a few. In addition to multiple medals and awards at Tallawah Dramatic Arts Festival and the Jamaica Cultural Development’s Speech and Drama competitions, the collective has also staged its own productions: Black Bodies, A Tribe Ting and their signature annual production Word Soul. Tribe Sankofa was a featured performer at the Carifesta Symposium 2017 in Barbados. Rising above the challenges and restrictions of COVID-19, they presented their first virtual season in August 2020 entitled Word Soul: The ‘Covid-19 Naah Flop Wi Show’ Edition.
