Join us for this fun family celebration of culture, rhythm, and unity! Onye Onyemaechi is a world-renowned master percussionist, performing African musician and teaching artist who engages children and parents in a participatory experience of African Village Celebration. Onye incorporates the importance of education, character traits such as respect, perseverance, responsibility and team cooperation. He uses captivating music, native dress and instruments presented in a historical/cultural context. All are encouraged to value and integrate their own heritages into their learning and living experiences! From 1-2pm we’ll make our own instruments– shakers, rhythm sticks, and more. Then, from 2-3pm, Onye will guide us in celebration!
