Add a new dimension to your studies of various world cultures with joyous song!
Students will experience an Indian tabla drum, an exotic stringed instrument from Europe, a “pocket instrument” with international roots and more as they sing along (in Nigerian, Italian, Japanese, Russian and English), respond to questions, move, laugh, inquire and learn.
Dave also talks about his own eye-opening trips to Asia and the Middle East.
A Q&A session will follow the program.
