David Pleasant, Drumfolk Master Percussionist/Scholar presents:
The Black History Month program Shout, Juba, and Jive. Pleasant’s work focuses on the Costal and Sea Islands GA and SC legacies, a blues, jazz and rock & roll and Civil Rights/Black Power era inspiration. This Gullah-Geechee music and movement event happens at the PLEASANT Institute located in Cat Sparks Art studios.
Facilitated by percussionist David Pleasant “A true griot who captivates audiences with performances that bridge African polyrhythms and quantum physics, Pleasant has made it his life’s work to bring the Gullah-Geechee hand claps and shouts into a contemporary, international realm” (Connect Savannah, 2016).
For students and families. All skill levels welcome!*
