Appearance at Buffalo State is fast becoming an annual tradition for Diaspora. This year they will perform with the West African Drumming Ensemble and S.P.i.R.i.T Gospel Choir.
Diaspora Drumming is a trio dedicated to studying, teaching, and performing percussion music of the African Diaspora. Members Ringo Brill, Tiffany Nicely, and Gabriel Gutierrez study with masters in various styles, traveling whenever possible to learn on the soil where the music was created. They seek and follow the threads connecting a wide range of rhythms to one another, and to their African sources.
