"Pressure Makes Diamonds" is our motto. We strive to perfect our art and provide the best in performing and recording arts with an emphasis on African and African diasporic history and culture. Sancocho Music and Dance Collage specializes in traditional music and dance from the Spanish-speaking countries of the Caribbean Islands that have strong African cultural retentions.  Amoah's African Drum Works provides fine quality custom-made African and Afro Caribbean percussion instruments as well as restoration and repair services. The Call of the Ancestors provides resources and guidance on one of the most challenging journeys in life, self-discovery.  Coal Bin Production's digital and analog recording facilities provides demo production for composers, poets, singers, rappers, actors, aspiring recording artists and others. Come on in and check us out.  Our Upcoming Events calendar will keep you informed of current performances and community events. May the peace and prosperity you seek be found.
