Women and Global Music: Hear Libana On Feb. 12

February 3, 2012


The musical ensemble group Libana will perform in Stonehill's Alumni Hall on February 12 at 7 p.m.

In conjunction with their evening concert, Libana will also offer a hands-on workshop in the afternoon at 2 p.m. to learn the musical ways of this eclectic group. Those interested in the workshop should bring their own instruments. The workshop and concert, both held in Alumni Hall, are free and open to the public.

Since 1979, Libana has toured around the globe playing traditional and contemporary world music to raise appreciation for cultural diversity, intercultural understanding and harmony. Their celebratory music, which features a plethora of instruments and vocal interludes, captures the creativity and vision women have showcased throughout history in music, song, and dance.

The name Libana refers to a 10th century Moorish woman poet, philosopher and musician, who historically has symbolized the creativity and vision of women.

The concert is sponsored in part by the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, the Office of Intercultural Affairs and the Martin Institute.
