The Dr. Vibe Show

The Collective Of Black Artists (COBA) COBA was founded in 1993 by Junia Mason, Charmaine Headley, BaKari E. Lindsay (formerly Eddison B. Lindsay) and Mosa Neshama (formerly Kim McNeilly). They were four Black dancers fired with the raw passion to fill a void on Toronto's arts scene by constructing a platform for dance creations that reflected their physical and social realities. COBA presents Traditional West African dance, music and folklore; Caribbean Indigenous Folk dance, music and rituals in their purest forms possible for the theatrical stage. While also creating contemporary works developed from an Africanist movement aesthetic that reflects African social realities in a global context. COBA's mission "is to preserve the cultural traditions of Africa diaspora through education, research and public performance". In this episode, BaKari E. Lindsay share some of his and COBA's story.
