Description

Students who attend the African Drumming Workshop will learn more about the importance of music in African societies, the role of music in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and how music was used by enslaved Africans and their descendants in the Americas. They will also learn more about how African cultural practices, specifically music, survived the trans-Atlantic crossing and how some aspects of African culture were transformed through contact with Europeans and indigenous peoples. The presentation is interactive, as the performers/presenters bring African drums and invite students to participate.
