A Musical Weekend!
This weekend I had the opportunity to watch & enjoy multiple musical performances!
On Friday, I went to see Zakuro-Daiko (The Union College Japanese Drumming Ensemble) perform their winter concert, titled, A Celebration of Winter. I saw them perform last year for the first time and remembered feeling completely pumped up and energized by their passion! This year was the same!
Below is a clip of Zakuro-Daiko performing the piece, “Narushima (Roaring Island)” originally composed/performed by Kodō (鼓童)/Basara:
On Saturday, I went with the Black Student Union to see the musical, FELA! It was absolutely incredible!
Fela Kuti, was a Nigerian musician, composer, pioneer of Afrobeat music, and human rights activist! Hear a Fela Kuti song here!
Needless to say I had a great time and feel pretty musically-inspired!
What did you do this weekend?
