Duniya will be performing at City Hall in San Francisco as part of the Rotunda Series presented by Dancers’ Group and World Arts West. The performance will take place at noon.
Bringing the Bay Area’s most acclaimed dance artists to San Francisco City Hall, the Rotunda Dance Series is thrilled to announce our 2012 season.

To cultivate respect for traditional forms, foster cultural exchange, effect social justice and engage in community building, Duniya Dance and Drum Company performs and teaches traditional and innovative performance pieces from Guinea, West Africa and Punjab, India. The word duniya means “world” in a wide array of languages, including Punjabi, Arabic, Susu and Wolof. Duniya’s work embodies this word, as it explores the forces that have brought together the members of the company and their dance and drum styles, including, but not limited to, colonization, globalization, immigration, art, dance, music and love.
