The con­cert will explore inter­ac­tion between dif­fer­ent cul­tures and ideas with pieces that high­light, to vary­ing degrees, inter­act­ing tra­di­tions, chang­ing prac­tices, and even gen­res. East engages the West, tech­nol­o­gy merges with tra­di­tion, and inter­nal prac­tices explore new avenues of expres­sion.

The Eth­no­mu­si­col­o­gy Asso­ci­a­tion is a stu­dent-run orga­ni­za­tion that seeks to increase aware­ness and under­stand­ing of all musics and cul­tures through out­reach, edu­ca­tion, and per­for­mance with­in the Uni­ver­si­ty, the com­mu­ni­ty, and beyond. Although the group is com­posed large­ly of eth­no­mu­si­col­o­gy stu­dents, all stu­dents are able and encour­aged to join.
