DRUM • DANCE • COMMUNITY …connecting with rhythm!

Baobab Community is a registered charity dedicated to the learning and sharing of the arts of Ghana, West Africa. Our  programming offers regular arts education opportunities for children and youth ages 7 through 18, monthly workshops for adults, as well as a summer day camp for ages 7-12. Through social events, performances, educational classes and workshops, participants learn about themselves and their place in the world.

Drumming provides confidence, self-esteem, physical workout and community building. Baobab is a socially responsible organization that has a 25+ year relationship with the village of Dagbamete in Ghana. This relationship has fostered economic development projects, artistic partnerships, international friendships, personal growth and inter-cultural knowledge.

Established in 1995, this multi-branched organization has reached thousands of people of all ages in the Ottawa and surrounding area, while affecting lives throughout the world.


Artistic director  Kathy Armstrong  sits down with CBC news anchor Adrian Harewood for an in-depth chat about our final season. Lots of great archival photos and video clips! You can see it here: https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1654275139906

We regret that our final show, SINGING DRUM Saturday June 6 at 7:30pm is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
