Making Music Dance

Making Music Dance is a collaborative world music and dance performance ensemble based in the New York area. We are the true meaning of eclectic, coming from diverse stylistic backgrounds:  African, Jazz, South American, Reggae, and many styles of physical percussion, including tap dance.  Our group, spanning 3 generations, has been collaborating since 2012.  Since then we’ve played at music and dance festivals across North America and released our first CD in November of 2015.
