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 … 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.
