Mile of Music Festival Part 2: Afro-Cuban, Mariachi, Ghanaian Drumming, and Menominee Flute Interviews & Workshops

By World Music Foundation

Last week, we spoke with Brian & Leila Pertl, and members of the Music Education Team, who have helped design the Mile of Music Festival, especially the cultural education components. This week, we’re speaking with the teaching-musicians themselves to learn about Afro-Cuban Drumming, Mariachi, Ghanaian Drumming, and Native American Flute. We attended a few sessions ourselves during the festival and spoke with these artists afterwards.   Here's a link to every Musical Mention in this episode: 4:07 Afro Cuban Music 4:30 Clave 5:30 Syncopation 5:34 Rhythmic Melody 6:07 Bembe Rhythm 6:26 Acoustic Music 7:44 Classical Music 10:26 Upright Bass 11:11 Mariachi 11:38 Mexican Hat Dance 12:34 Instrumental 12:49 Genre 12:56 World Music 13:00 Son Jalisciense 13:30 Anthem 14:01 Bolero 14:06 Guitar 16:12 Pop Mariachi 16:21 Little Village 19:28 Americana 19:40 Acoustic 21:28 Lawrence University in Appleton 21:40 Minneapolis 21:43 Percussionist 21:49 Porky’s Groove Machine 21:50 Black Market Brass 21:56 Groove music 22:16 Mile of Music 22:51 Ghanaian Drumming 22:23 Ewe 22:24 Gahu 23:04 Boba Drum 23:35 Ewe Drums 23:52 Drumhead 23:05 Tune 23:07 Pitch 26:32 Polyrhythms 27:33 Ethnomusicology 27:35 Percussion music 29:50 Repetition 29:59 Composite rhythm 36:15 Wade Fernandez 36:17 Menominee 36:33 Vocals 36:34 Guitar 36:35 Native American Flute 36:43 Recordings 36:58 Flutes 37:31 Indian Summer Festival
