DanceAfrica 2013 launches with a tribute to those who have passed on to the ancestral grounds. The event includes music and drumming; a libation ceremony for the ancestors, conducted by the DanceAfrica Council of Elders; and performances by Umkhathi Theatre Works and invited guests, all under the guidance of DanceAfrica Artistic Director Baba Chuck Davis. Members of the community are encouraged to take part in the celebration.
