The West African Talking Drum

The West African Talking Drum

Join us for The West African Talking Drum, June 18 at 1 and 2 pm.

Teens, it’s time to play some drums! Participants will learn about Ghana in West Africa and explore a drumming tradition that dates back 800 years. Experience how music is an integral part of all societies of this region. Through a hands-on workshop we will see how music speaks to a community, and how it can make a village dance. Ages 12-18.
