Les Ballets Africains, the National Ensemble of the Republic of Guinea, will perform a two-part program at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts on March 6 as part of its 50th anniversary tour.

The large company of dancers and master drummers is led by artistic director Italo Zambo and choreographer Hamidou Bangoura.

The first half of the program is a narrative dance about villagers overcoming oppression, and the second half depicts villagers working together to overcome poverty and hunger, culminating with "cathedral of rhythms," a percussion extravaganza and display of costumes representing the diversity of cultures indigenous to Africa.

Tickets are $40 and $35. The performance takes place at 8 pm at Brooklyn College’s Walt Whitman Theater, 900 Campus Road at Hillel Place in Midwood. For more information, call (718) 951-4500.
