Kubatana & the Moringa Dancers are a high energy Wellington based drum and dance ensemble, influenced by West African music and culture. We have been playing in and around Wellington for 10 years. We are people who love and enjoy the percussive rhythms, sound and dances of Africa. We are a multicultural group with members from across the globe including the UK, Brazil, US, India, Mexico, France, Spain, Poland and New Zealand. We have come together here in NZ through a shared passion for the interaction of live music and expressive movement. Kubatana means UNITY. Why Unity? Our group comes from all walks of life, but when we play together as a group, we become one, and unity, for us, is what drumming & dance are all about.
