Program Title AFRICAN INSTRUMENTS
 
Program Description Drums are probably the earliest musical instrument, common to all cultures. This presentation describes the role of music in traditional African society using drumming. In Africa, the role of music in society -- for communication, ceremony, oral history, spiritual expression and entertainment -- is so fundamental that many African languages have no word for 'music.' It is simply an ever-present part of life. Several kinds of drums are used in this presentation, and the audience will have a chance to play them.
