A traditional tribute to those who have passed on to the ancestral grounds, this commemoration includes music and drumming; a libation ceremony for the ancestors, conducted by the DanceAfrica Council of Elders; and performances by Groupe Bakomanaga and invited guests. Celebrations are under the guidance of DanceAfrica Artistic Director Baba Chuck Davis, and members of the community are encouraged to take part.
