A Journey Through Black Music

The Beat of Time

Mary Teresa Herrera
African Drumming

On Saturday, Feb. 4, Albuquerque's African American Performing Arts Center begins this year's celebration of Black History Month with A Journey Through Black Music, an event designed to emphasize the enormous influence African music and its many derivatives have had on world and American culture. It's no secret that the source of European-American modernism and the avant-garde is in Africa (just ask Picasso, if you want to know more about that). But more importantly, African musical forms, rhythms and compositional techniques brought sounds like the blues, jazz and rocanrol to fruition here and elsewhere, providing a basis for expression that is always intense and evocative. With performers including the WaMba African Drummers, Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church Inspirational Choir, dancer Trey “Vision” Pickett and vocalists Tracey Whitney, Zenobia Conkerite and Raven Rutherford, at this year's event, A Journey Through Black Music is an essential and rare opportunity to see those fulsome forces in effect. Tickets are just $10 for the show beginning at 7pm. (August March)
