The Spirit of the Drum Lecture Series

Join John Santos for this unique 6-week lecture series. True to African tradition, the drum is still the heartbeat of many working class communities in the African diaspora. In this series, we will enter these communities through video clips, photos and rare recordings, as well as take an up-close look at several of the rhythmic instruments used in diverse drumming traditions found in the Americas. We'll also discuss the commonalities, connections and differences between regional forms and how these threatened art forms are the expressive voices of resistance as they have been since colonial times. These are not hands-on, playing classes although some demonstration of rhythms and instruments will be included.
