This workshop takes a birds-eye view of the traditional and popular musics of Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the USA. By tracing four hundred years of intersecting musical folkways of four continents, participants will more intensely appreciate the historical and contemporary dynamics which have shaped today’s global expressive culture. Participants will have the opportunity to sing and drum traditional music of Africa, play Appalachian Mountain folk music, experience music of selected African-American folkways, perform choice dance rhythms from Latin America, and build simple musical instruments based on intercultural inspirations.
