African Music Dance & Perform.

African Music and Dance Performance
In this course we will meet as an ensemble to learn and master how to play, sing, and dance to various African traditional musical instruments. With emphasis on technique, style, and form, we will get hands-on experience playing various types of East African musical instruments (drums, fiddles, harps, lyres, zithers, flutes, panpipes, trumpets, thumb pianos, rattles, shakers, and xylophones). At the end of the semester we will stage a concert highlighting the repertoire we have learned. This course is open to all students and will not require any prior knowledge of performing African music and dance.
