Leon Mobley

Leon Mobley is among the most esteemed percussionists in the world. He is the founder and artistic director of DJIMBÉ West African Drummers and Dancers and has taught at both the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and the University of California at Los Angeles, CA.

Leon Mobley Artist in Residence Program - The program begins with a brief history of African dance and drumming, showing the language of the dance and how the drummer plays what the dancer dances and the dancer dances what the drummer plays. Including the Dance Lamba, which is a healing dance from the 13th and 14th century of the Mali Empire in which the compound would use this dance to heal its sick and the dance Mand Jani which is a celebration dance that is performed at the end of ceremonies.
