Rochester loves percussion, which makes it a natural home and performance venue for Bush Mango, a 13-member company featuring drumming, dancing, and performance. Bush Mango's holiday performance on November 16 is titled "Kibola Kei Kei," which translates as "Moon over Kibola" (a village in Guinea, West Africa). The music is poly-rhythmic; the dancing is dynamic. The performance will feature guest artist Mohamed Diaby, a Guinean master drummer, and Eric Borketey Ansuade, a tumbler and acrobat.
Bush Mango performs Saturday, November 16, 8 p.m. at German House Theater, 315 Gregory St. $12-$18. bushmangodrumdance.org, 235-3960.
