We love Africa and we have made it our goal to preserve its culture in this fast changing world. The traditional art of ngoma (African drumming & dancing in Swahili) is our expertise, and our mission is to spread this art as much as possible. And not just ngoma - our dream is to help people discover their talents and through art improve their lives. Financially, emotionally and sometimes even physically. Karibuni wote!

Shine Africa Community Art, is a charitable organization whose incorporation was inspired by a  group of professional drummers and dancers who graduated from the same college.
