Line Dancing and African Drumming at Dancin’ on the Door

Edi Gbordzi

The new dance studio in Egg Harbor, Andria’s Dancin’ on the Door School of Dance will host and African dance and drumming workshop on Oct. 5 with international artist Edi Gbordzi, a master drummer/dancer from Ghana. He has performed internationally with the Ghana National Dance Ensemble and is a gifted singer/songwriter. With deep roots in the Ewe drumming culture, he grew up drumming and singing in his community and uses this powerful rhythmic language as the driving force behind Timbukale or power rhythm. The music of Timbukale also reflects Edi’s rich background as a dancer.
