The Murphy Fine Arts Center
"Elephant Leaders of Women"
We Stand On Their Shoulders

GIWAYEN MATA (pronounced gee-WY-en Mah-tah) is the award winning, dynamic, soul-stirring, all-sistah, dance, percussion, and vocal ensemble that celebrates the richness of traditional Afrika by exhibiting its exemplary art forms. The ensemble performs traditional, contemporary and original pieces that address issues pertaining to people of color, women and the environment. The name "Giwayen Mata" (literally) translates to Elephant Leaders of Women.

Their stop in Baltimore is part of their east-coast tour.  Their concert is entitled "We Stand on Their Shoulders" which is a showcase of dances, rhythms, songs and more to honor our trail blazers...a show that has something for the entire family!

Their Baltimore stop includes a Dance Workshop on Friday, February 16th at 6:30 PM.  For the dancers, bring your lappas and your head ties for a scheduled special dance workshop taught by Giwayen Mata. (Reserve your spot for the workshop by calling the MFAC Ticket Office:  443-885-4440).
