The choir features Africans living in Slovenia and their family and friends. Sankofa was created as part of the project “Expressive World of African Culture”, which aims to promote the development and raise awareness and knowledge of African culture across Slovenia. The name Sankofa originates from Gana and symbolizes the meaning of learning from past experience. Being true to their name, the Sankofa Choir draw from traditional African songs, which they present in brand new and fresh renditions.
Sankofa’s repertoire consists of traditional and contemporary African songs, as well as original music written by choir members.
