About the Skirball
Returning to the Skirball by popular demand, Extra Ancestral delivers a joyful performance to close out the Sunset Concerts season.
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. You won’t want to miss this celebration of the African diaspora in Los Angeles.
“So grateful to have witnessed Extra Ancestral. It was so good for my soul.”
