2019 alumna Jennifer Meya Magorza launched “Mujeres al Tambor”; A series of online percussion workshops for over 100 women in Latin America to share and learn traditional rhythms and drums of the Colombian Caribbean. By connecting through art, the online workshops will empower and strengthen a network of women.
In all 1,208 people registered for the workshops, with participants from 24 countries joining in from throughout the Americas, Europe, and Africa. Over the course of 8 workshops, participants exchanged ancestral, musical and cultural knowledge, feelings, and empowerment, with Jenn and her collaborator Orito Cantora leading each session.
You can watch the 3rd workshop, in which participants explored the origins of and learned to play Bullerengue rhythms, here.
