CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH!

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Fenix is geared up for a busy month of performances for Black History Month.  Presented at  ten Sacramento Public Branch libraries, these family oriented programs use music, dance and narrative to highlight the richness of the African-American artistic experience.
Programs include Fenix' signature programs "From Africa to the Americas",  a lively interactive medley of dancing, drumming and folktales and "Dance and Drum for Joy", a drum and dance circle that  keeps everyone tapping their toes.
"BlackScrap Music" gives the audience to play the diddley bow, spoons and other musical instruments fashioned from everyday materials by African-Americans.
Drums and a display of indigo dyed fabrics enhance the fascinating stories of indigo dye - from the 'blue men' of Africa to the blue jeans of today in "Indigo Blue". 
For a list of programs and locations, please go the the Events tab.
ALSO, SAVE THE DATE FOR OUR ANNUAL "BIG SHOW"!!
May 13 & 14, at the Artisan Theater, 1901 Del Paso Blvd. Stay tuned for ticket availability!

 We are practicing hard to bring you a great show!!! (See below...)
