The University of Tennessee at Martin World Percussion Ensemble will be performing “The Roots of Rhythm,” with shows at noon and 7:30 p.m., Feb. 22 in Watkins Auditorium of Boling University Center on campus.
The UT Martin World Percussion Ensemble performs regularly for schools and communities with the presentation “The Roots of Rhythm.”
The presentation provides a multi-sensory performance, encouraging students to observe how differing societies are formed and interact through music. Brazilian, African, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Cuban ensembles also perform on traditional instruments during the program, demonstrating the migration of rhythm through the slave trade.
Admission for the performance is $5 per person and free for children ages seven and younger. Group discounts are available.
For more information, contact Dr. Julie Hill, associate professor of percussion, at (731) 881-7418 or
