“Roots of Rhythm” Program

In November, 2010 Percussia premiered its program "Roots of Rhythm" at St. John's University in Queens.  This program was presented together with the Trans World Performing Arts Ensemble, a traditional Ugandan drumming and dance based in the Bronx. This program explored the music of the contemporary Ugandan composer Justinian Tamusuza, along with the traditional music and dance that informed his style.
