Student drummers and drumming enthusiasts of all levels – listen up: Canisius College is introducing the Arabic Drumming Ensemble under the direction of percussion instructor Bob Accurso. New this semester, the ensemble will explore and perform traditional rhythms from the Middle East and northern Africa, and teach participants essential rhythms and techniques on a variety of the most commonly used drums.
Don’t own a drum but would like to play? Drums will be available for you to use.
