In 2014, The Adinkra Group presented the first Birthright Annual Concert. The Birthright Annual Concert is always held on the 3rd Saturday of August in honor of Diali Djimo Kouyate’s birthday, an esteemed elder and one of our primary teachers. The annual concert features the Farafina Kan Family and special guest performers. Each year we select two community members to receive the The Diali Djimo Kouyate Birthright Award for their contributions to the legacy of African dance and drum.

In 2016 we launched Birthright Journeys. Each year at the Birthright Annual Concert, attendees have the opportunity to win a trip to one of our upcoming Birthright Journeys and/or tickets to Africa through our partnership with South African Airways.

We encourage all attendees to come dressed in their best African Cultural wear and capture the moment on our red carpet. The Birthright Annual Concert is a high spirited African cultural performance experience.
