Thursdays 7:30 - 9 pm 1/14 - 3/18 (10 weeks). NOTE: A placement consultation is required. Please contact rob@cjc.edu before registering in this ensemble. The African Ensemble explores diverse styles such as Afrobeat, soukous, highlife, “desert blues,” South African, Zimbabwean, Afropop and Ethio-jazz. We emphasize listening to each other, learning the specific rhythms and how they interact, and understanding each song’s cultural contexts. In between weekly Zoom classes, members collaborate with the instructor’s guidance in recording songs together on Soundtrap (user-friendly web-based software; cost included in tuition w/basic tutorial provided).
