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.





Degree Requirement Attributes

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
