To understand the harp today, one must look at its roots across Africa and Asia. To tell this musical tale, the Museum welcomes Dr. James Makubuya who will present a concert on the African harp known as the adungu.
Born in the East African nation of Uganda, Dr. Makubuya is an accomplished professor, musician, and ethnomusicologist. The diversity of the African harp is spectacular. Researchers have identified nine distinct types of bow harps from Uganda and more than 150 throughout Africa. Join us for this intelligent look into our musical past.
