The National Arts Club, in partnership with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, is joining New York Public Library’s citywide dance party! Baba Don Eaton Babatunde and his band JAAMBO will inspire you to move and groove, as they perform from the front stoop of our historic landmark building on Gramercy Park.
Baba Don Eaton Babatunde, a percussionist very much in demand, has performed with major American dance companies such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Limon Dance Company and the Dance Theatre of Harlem in some of the world’s greatest performing arts venues.
His recording career is as equally varied as it is vast in jazz idioms, rhythm and blues, and most African derived music. He is the founder of JAAMBO, an Afro Caribbean ensemble and the founder of Percussion Arts Projects LLC. He is a featured member of the esteemed Last Poets. He has long been acknowledged as one of New York City’s master teachers of African Drumming and the rhythms of the Diaspora in the Americas.
Please note: This performance takes place outdoors.
