The Strings of West Africa: A Presentation of Traditional Music from Senegal
- Dr. Thomas D. Pappert Center for Performance and Innovation, Mary Pappert School of Music
Join music student Julie Chiem as she presents a concert of traditional music from Senegal as part of her Duquesne Endowed Honors Fellowship. The project grant was awarded to help de-stigmatize Africa, in part by showing that their music is more than just drumming and that it can be just as deeply intricate and intellectual as Western art music. She will be performing some traditional pieces on the kora, a West African harp.
