Common Threads: Introduction to West African Drumming

Connect with us as we share a brief history on West African drumming. Learn how to approach the drum, as we share the technique, styles, rhythms, and tempos while learning how to play in concert and connect with other drummers. This 90-minute class is free with admission. Children under 10 require adult supervision to participate. Instructor: Baye Kemit.

Common Threads is a series of community driven programs designed to provide varied and engaging points of entry into the work of artist Joyce J. Scott. Programs take place in the Joyce J. Scott: Harriet Tubman and Other Truths exhibition space unless otherwise noted, and are made possible, in part, by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in these programs do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. Additional funding provided by the Shirley and Arthur Martin Family Fund.
