Our Mission

Lukumi Arts is an interdisciplinary arts collective dedicated to creating innovative projects. Founded (January2008) as an open and growing collective of artists, orisha/palo priests and practitioners, singers, dancers, percussionists, MCs, and producers; we narrate stories that reflect the history, struggles, perserverance and beauty of our community. Amidst a negative array of stereotypes, images and misinformation about Afro-Cuban religions and culture, we communicate the positive, empowering nature of Afro-Cuban arts.

LUKUMI ARTS celebrates our 10-year anniversary
