Do you remember the scene in the movie, Black Panther, on “Challenge Day” when the people on the wall of water moved rhythmically to the beat of the drum? Do you recall how compelling the drum beat was? Did you think, “how beautiful,” when you saw all the tribal members in their colors moving to the beat? Jabari Exum, drummer and choreographer on the movie Black Panther, will perform using the acoustic drum and engage the audience with storytelling. It has been said, “he brought Wakanda to Wakanda.” At Wakandacon Jabari will bring the spirit of the drum to us in Chicago – in a form he has developed which fuses West African Drumming and the Latin Tradition with Hip Hop Music.
