The World Stage Founded as a collaborative art work in progress by Billy Higgins and Kamau Daaood, The World Stage has grown into a sacred space. Here, jazz occupies an important position within the fabric of the community, and a jazz driven cultural revolution continues to unfold around The World Stage. From Sunday to Thursday, $5 gets you into workshops that run like informal jam sessions. On a recent Sunday night, women served dinner from the kitchen. Mondays still belong to drummers, that session formerly run by Higgins. Tuesdays belong to vocalists, and Wednesdays the Anansi Writers' Workshop convenes.
