The Afro-Atlantic Music Healing Workshop
Features a mix of West African, Afro-Caribbean and African music from the 19th century to the present. This workshop student will play and hear repertoire from west african string court and blues music, son cubano, reggae, afrobeat, congolese rumba, cumbia, merengue, samba-rock, and boogaloo . Participants will criss-cross the Atlantic Ocean on this musical journey, following the travels of artists, traders, workers, and enslaved peoples who helped create the foundations of popular music through their innovations. Expect to hear both traditional instruments and modern electric ones, accompanied by forceful vocals, mind-boggling percussion, and even some dancing. Open to all students.
