The beauty of the African Diaspora is that it provides answers to the unanswered questions for African Americans regarding their true cultural heritage. But, the magic of the African Diaspora is that the music and dance of these cultures build a bridge to others creating community and restoring our sense of Humanity. This is why the 4th Annual Congo Square ATX Festival is not to be missed. No other live music event in the Austin area holds an intention for diverse cultural understanding and the renewal of our sense of Humanity.
Congo Square ATX is sponsored by DRUM the Program, Inc. a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving Texas and Alabama. In the State of Texas DRUM the Program operates as a 501c3 also known as DRUM the Program Initiative.
