World Music Ensemble

This concert features the three UW Madison World Percussion Ensembles, as well as the new "Drumming the World" class. We'll be performing music from Brazil, Cuba and the Middle East. 

Included on the program is a revamped arrangement by Lucas Guttiérez and myself which fuses two Afro-Cuban song and drum traditions (batá and rumba) with similar traditions from Brazil (candomblé and avamunha) as well as some Rio-style batucada. We performed this arrangement last spring, but it has come a really long way since then and I am excited to share it on Saturday. 

Music Hall, 12pm
