About the Artist: Bi-Okoto
Bl-OKOTO was established in 1994 as a professional African dance company comprised of highly talented artists and was incorporated in August 1996 as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit multicultural performing arts organization in the state of Ohio.
Over the years, they have grown to be one of the most artistically accomplished and stable cultural institutes in the tri-state. The organization is highly regarded for its innovative repertory and programming both nationally and internationally.
They envision a world where individuals, families, and communities take pride in their cultural heritage while appreciating the cultural expression of others. Their mission is to preserve, promote, and share the rich cultural heritage of Africa and Africans using drums, music, dance, food, languages, and other arts.
They have earned a reputation as one of the country’s finest professional African traditional dance companies and cultural organizations. The company has been praised by the dance community and the media for the works they create and produce, and also for being the only outstanding authentic African Dance Company in the tri-state area (Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana).
This performance is made possible through support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and by American Rescue Plan funds from the City of Cincinnati, administered through ArtsWave.
