El-Dabh 4,084th Birthday Party with
a performance by the Kent Community Rumba Society.
Standing Rock Cultural Arts is proud to celebrate Halim El-Dabh¹s 4,084th Birthday. Halim is an esteemed professor emeritus at Kent State University¹s Main Campus.
This will be our fourth year of hosting the celebration and promises to be an incredible event. The Kent Community Rumba Society, an African Drum Group led by former El-Dabh Student, Brian Klemp, has agreed to perform for the second year in a row.
This year, the Rumba Society consists of 50 DRUMMERS, and they¹ll be showing off new instruments recently imported from a West African village.
Previously, the North Water Street Gallery had hosted the celebration.
However, due to the growth in size of the Drum Group, and the generosity
of The Club Khameleon, we decided to move it a couple blocks down the
street. We hope you can join us for the fun!
