Composer and ethnomusicologist Robert Levin shares his knowledge of instruments and rhythms of the traditional music of the Ewe people of Ghana, West Africa. He has spent over twenty years studying traditional Ewe drumming and singing, and has brought this music to many students in the U.S. His credits as a composer include the soundtrack to the 1996 feature film “Inside.” Levin is also a regular performer in the Broadway production of “The Lion King.” This event was recorded at Lehman on September 2, 2010 and is part of the City and the Humanities Program Series.
