 africans unite

Mapapa Acrobats are Black African Acrobats who were

 
born in Mombassa Kenya. They have performed in
 
Australia, China, Korea, Germany, France,
 
Italy and Spain. Their show’s length can get up to 60
 
minutes long. It’s what you would call circus acrobatics
 
with dance moves to African music. They’ve done
 
an NBA half time show booking and opened tours for
 
Monica, Blackstreet, etc.
 
          IT is rare to see traditional arts and circus
 
skills done African style but they do it. Involved in their
 
show are conga lines, skipping, acrobatics, limbo,
 
handclapping and laughter. Mapapa Acrobats have
 
done shows for NFL, NHL, MLB, and WNBA teams
 
and starting the 1999 World Cup of Soccer and
 
thePan AM Games.
 
                     Oh, I want to let you know
 
that they have performed at more than 300 festivals
 
like Nickelodian’s Summer kickoff, Central Park,
 
Summerstage, the Music Midtown Festival in
 
Atlanta and more. In their pictures, they are so
 
high in air that they stand and form a chandelier
 
pose. They are standing on each other
 
making that specific image form.
My black people we are a team.  Dance
and other forms of entertainment unites
us as we work together.
