Description

DrumsSaturday, April 5, 1:00 - 4:00 pm
World Culture Afternoon
Drums around the World

Come with your drum! This percussion party takes guests on a musical journey from Africa to Brazil, to Ireland, the Middle East, and Native American beats, all in one afternoon. A limited number of drums are provided, and visitors are welcome to bring their own drums to the Penn Museum for the workshops—and a grand finale drum circle performance to close the afternoon in a medley of drums, cultures, and goodwill.

An assortment of drums and flutes are available for purchase in the Museum Shop and the Pyramid Shop for Children. Family crafts and a self-guided tour of instruments on display throughout the Penn Museum round out the day.

Co-sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania's 2013-2014 Year of Sound. Free with Museum admission.
