    Born to parents from Rwanda and Uganda, Somi is now at home in Harlem’s vibrant immigrant community of “Little Africa.”  Petite Afrique: The Other Black in Harlem is a song cycle inspired by that place, its ornate traditional fabrics, Francophone bibles, palm oil and shea butter, and tribes of fast-fingered hair braiders.

    This performance is part of The Ringling's New Stages contemporary performance series.
