Thu, 06/04/2015 - 12:10pm - 1:00pm

Mounafanyi is bound to take concertgoers' breaths away with their explosive, energizing rhythms from West Africa.

The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with the Hochstein School of Music & Dance and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series. The series includes ten outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:10pm during June, July and August. Weather permitting, they will be held in theGranite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a diverse mix of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a great lunch area restaurants (like La Luna and Fina's Cafe). Each performance runs approximately 45 minutes.

The June 4th concert features Rochester’s only PanAfrican performing group, Mounafanyi Percussion and Dance Ensemble. Their drummers bring audiences the vibrant rhythms of West Africa’s iconic djembe hand drum, supported by a trio of drums known as dunun, sangban, and kenkeni.
