Focus on South Florida: African Diaspora Dance & Drum Festival We look ahead to the 5th annual African Diaspora Dance and Drum Festival of Florida. Its mission is to preserve African-American heritage here -- and does so in a way everyone can enjoy--- through food, music and dance. This year's theme is "bridging cultural gaps". We focus on why the festival is significant, and what it has to offer. We are also joined in the studio by 4 performers --- dancers and drummers who will be participating in next month’s event.
