Omar Sosa Oral Traditions Class Visit: April 3, 2008

Omar Sosa's Afreecanos Quartet presented a guest lecture in an Oral Traditions music class. Sosa conducted the roomful of djembe-playing students and encouraged them to explore the connections between rhythm and self-expression. Sensing some hesitation, Sosa invited the class to get on their feet and dance with him. "Let your body flow," he said. "Never stop yourself."
