UT Martin’s World Percussion Ensemble’s Roots of Rhythm Tour to Make Stop at DSCC
Dyersburg, Tennessee – The University of Tennessee at Martin World Percussion Ensemble is scheduled to present its award-winning Roots of Rhythm performance Monday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m., inside the E.H. Lannom, Jr. Gymnasium on the Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) Dyersburg campus. The free event is open to the community and is sponsored by the DSCC International Education Program.
The Ensemble’s Roots of Rhythm musical performances encourage cultural diversity within the greater West and Middle Tennessee community. It incorporates history, geography and music through a multi-sensory performance that allows the exploration of other cultures through music. Steel Drums and Tamboo Bamboo instruments from Trinidad, Shona Marimbas from Zimbabwe, Traditional Dundun Drums from Guinea, Brazilian Samba instruments and much more are used throughout the exciting performance. Audience members will be able to interact during the concert by listening, participating, observing and visualizing the differing societies and their cultures in Africa, Cuba, Brazil, the United States, and the Caribbean.
The Ensemble recently won the Percussive Arts Society’s International World Percussion Competition in the university showcase category for the first time in UT Martin’s history.
