About the Program

Celebrate the African diaspora in Los Angeles with Extra Ancestral! Founded by artist-educator Kahlil Cummings, this inspiring group of performers pairs traditional African song and dance with a dazzling fusion of Afrobeat, jazz, and reggae.

Also go behind the scenes with the artists to explore the intersection of migration, family history, and American experience.

Donor Support

Season 2 of Skirball Stages is made possible in part by generous support from the Bilger Family; Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture; and U.S. Bank.
