Drum workshop scheduled
URBANA — A free drum and dance workshop will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. Wednesday (March 13) at the Channing-Murray Foundation, 1209 W. Oregon St.
The local group, Costas, will lead the evening of Afro‐Colombian drumming and dance workshops, followed by a live participatory performance. This event is made possible with support from a city of Urbana Arts Grant.
Afro-Colombian music was formed through interaction among indigenous, Spanish and African peoples brought to Colombia and retains many rhythmic similarities to the music of West Africa.
