Mundo Monthly: Afrikania Ghanaian Drumming Ensemble
(International Campus Programming)

Renowned Ghanaian drummer and professor of music at the University of North Texas, Gideon Alorwayie and his group Afrikania will be performing live in the Gray Auditorium of the Presser Music Building on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 8:00 PM.

Co-sponsored by the Berea College Department of Music and the Center for International Education, as part of Mundo Monthly- the series that brings the world to Berea, part of the International Focus year (2018-2019) on Africa

Free and open to the Public!

From the New York Times:
"Mr. Alorwoyie (pronounced al-or-WO-yee), 71, is a rarity in American academia: a master drummer from Africa who is a tenured professor of African drumming and dance, disciplines that are difficult to categorize within Western musical theory. And in his own country, he is one of the few musicians working arduously to pass on traditions in danger of disappearing."
