“Ngoma y’Africa” roughly translates to the drumming, dance, and songs of Africa. At the Ngoma y'AfricaCultural Center in Provo, a diverse group of volunteers engage in African culture through music, dance, and storytelling.For those who emigrated from Africa themselves, dance is not only a way to share their heritage — it’s a method of deep, personal healing through collective experience.
