The McDaniel College Department of Music will present a performance by its Student African Drum Ensemble and students in its Making Rock music class on Thursday, May 2 at 7:00 p.m. The performance will take place in Decker College Center Forum.
The Student African Drum Ensemble is under the direction of McDaniel music department faculty Pape Demba "Paco" Samb, a “Senegalese Griot,” or West African historian, storyteller, singer, poet, dancer, and/or musician. Samb grew up in Senegal, learning to play the drums, and came to the U.S. in 2013. Samb originally came to the U.S. to perform with his band and once he arrived here he decided to stay.
The students in the Making Rock class are under the direction of Roxanne Wehking, who has been teaching and playing rock music for most of her career. Her main instrument is the guitar, which she teaches here at McDaniel. This class gives Roxanne the opportunity to bring rock music into an academic setting, a subject to which she is very close.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 410-857-2599.
