Da African Village and the 418 Project presented a Day Of Africa, on December 17, 2016, which featured a program of five dance classes with teachers from Senegal, Congo, Burkina Faso, Guinea, and Brazil and an evening performance of SambaDá with very special guests. This beautiful event was offered to the community as a fundraiser for both non-profit organizations. The 418 Project has been creating a space for global dance traditions and other arts in Santa Cruz for more than 30 years. Da African Village promotes cultural understanding between Africa and the world through music, dance and cultural exchange, as well as supporting educational programs and artists in the U.S. and in Senegal. This was Afro-Brazilian Samba-Funk-Dance group SambaDá‘s last 2016 performance in Santa Cruz.
