Maria Nhambu reads from Drum Beats, Heart Beats (Dancing Soul Trilogy)

 

In Drum Beats,Heart Beats the final volume of her Dancing Soul Trilogy, we join an ever insightful and passionate Nhambu as she traverses diverse cultures and continents and negotiates a complex and shifting web of mixed identities—African immigrant and African American—through marriage, parenthood, and the search for the father she has never known. Through trauma and triumph, love and betrayal, the “Drum Beats” and “Heart Beats” of her native Africa lead her on a profound journey of transcendence.

Maria Nhambu was born in Tanzania, East Africa, and raised in an orphanage for biracial children. Her love of education and a St. Paul teacher brought her to St. Catherine's for college. She taught African Studies in Minneapolis. Her passion for African dance, art, and culture inspired her to create the popular workout Aerobics With Soul®, and teach African Studies in America. She has made sharing her love of Africa and its culture and rhythms the focus of her life. In that role she gives African dance presentations and speaks about Africa to groups across the U.S. and around the world.
