In a whirl of green, red, and white, the Royal Drummers and Dancers of Burundi command the stage during an explosive, centuries-old spectacle straight from the heart of Africa. The rotating cast of performers have toured the world since the 1960s, released three albums, and collaborated with a slew of popular musicians, among them Joni Mitchell and Echo and the Bunnymen. In their live show, three different types of drums—all crafted from hollowed-out tree trunks—keep a continuous rhythm as the performers alternate between drumming and dancing. The players even balance their instruments on their head upon entering and exiting the stage, showcasing the expressive possibilities of the human body more effectively than live tattooing competitions.

Music Hall Center

Built in 1928, Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
