Crocodile River promotes African and African-influenced music including Brazilian, Caribbean and Flamenco by connecting our roster of distinguished performers with audiences of all ages, backgrounds and experiences.

Our concerts, workshops, lecture/demonstrations, residences, and other educational programs make us a leading source of African music and cultural activity in New England.

In support of our mission, Crocodile River has recently entered into a working partnership with the Gallery of African Art in Clinton, Massachusetts, with the common goal of increasing awareness and appreciation of African art and music throughout the Northeast.
