Africa->West Just Wants to Play, They Wanna Bang on the Drum All Day at Baldwin-Wallace

Fri 2/16 @ 7PM

Jamie Ryan, Ryan Korb, and Josh Ryan comprise the Africa->West Trio, a music group in residence at Baldwin Wallace University, either devoted to African-style percussion, or to give musical employment to anyone with “Ryan” in their name.

Survey says ‚Ķ it’s the first one (Ryan Reynolds, devastated, turns his sports car around, goes back to Hollywood). Drawing from their studies with drum maestros and folk-musicians in Africa and the West Indies, the three well-traveled members of Africa->West blend western with Afro-Caribbean instruments and techniques, featuring marimba, congas, shekere, hi-hats, snare drums, the works.

In this concert the trio will render selections from their original recordings, as well as showcase their new composition, “Myth of the Metals.”¬†Admission is free.
