Zach Combs, Director of Crocodile River Music, fell in love with the rich and diverse culture of West Africa while in Mali on a Watson Fellowship. Deeply inspired by his journey, Zach founded Crocodile River Music in 2011 in an effort to provide opportunities for both emerging and established artists from Africa and evoke new ways of cultural thinking in New England.
As word about the mission of Crocodile River Music spread, requests poured in to expand into schools and community groups. In response to this demand, Crocodile River Music launched African Arts in Education, a fiscally sponsored project created to bring African music, art, and dance education directly to New England schools.
