MUS 51 Oral Tradition Musicianship
Through disciplined practice of West African, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Brazilian percussion-based music under the leadership of a master drummer, students will enter a musical world in which creating, mentoring, and communicating are all rooted in oral tradition. Weekly music making is integrated with discussions and audio-visual materials that culturally contextualize the musical traditions being performed.
