Description

Over the past fifteen years, Joshua Dunigan has used his love of world music to teach and perform Afro-Cuban and Latin percussion with adult classes and public school students. As the percussionist for Latin-Rock band Cabildo and Afrobeat band AfroZuma, Josh places traditional Cuban, Brazilian, and Andean rhythms in a contemporary setting for live shows in Grand Rapids.

Josh has also been an instructor at The Cook Arts Center in Grand Rapids for the past 10 years. He uses a curriculum with emphasis placed on understanding the fundamentals of rhythm, practicing proper playing technique, and having fun with world music in an ensemble.

As an instructor for Artists Creating Together (ACT), Josh works with cognitively disabled students using world percussion instruments to learn communication, expression, group play and the science of sound.

Through ACT,  Josh directs The Action Drummers am inclusive group of cognitively disabled musicians. The goal of this group is to perform at community events to promote the work of ACT and disabled people in the community.
