DESCRIPTION

Drawing from her long-term autoethnographical project Kentifrica, which encompasses the creation of a revival of a continent where the histories of Kentucky and the ancestral heritage of West Africa converge, Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle will present two concerts by ethnomusicologists studying Kentifrican musical forms. Working in collaboration with performer/composer Kevin Robinson and instrument maker and musician Eugene Moon, Hinkle has created a series of instruments and original musical compositions inspired by different regions of Kentifrica.
