SYMPOSIUM: DOCUMENTING THE SOUNDS OF AFRICA

Wodem Band

JANUARY 11 8:00am - 7:30pm (SOLD OUT - Wait list only)

“Documenting the Sounds of Africa” celebrates the re-opening of the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive after the recent renovations. It is also a way to honor Professor Emerita Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje, who was Director of the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive from 2000 to 2007, and whose work has focused on African-American and African music. The symposium will feature paper panels, a keynote by Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje. We will also have an open house to show off the newly re-designed Archive rooms.

There will be a concert of music from 5:30pm to 7:00pm featuring members of the UCLA West African and Afro-Cuban Ensembles and Wondem Band.
