Play On Baba .. Play On!!

I had the honor of meeting him in 2012 in Atlanta while with Wose of Charleston

This hits hard .. shared from Sekou Conde ..

At a lost of words, My inspiration to further my studies of Djembe. Your life has touched the world and brought Djembe to the forefront in thousands of Djembe players across the globe.

Thank you for your dedication to making sure the history and folklore of Djembe stays alive and prominent for us all.

So happy to have spent time and sat at your feet you during the Legends of West Africa tour, and the recent conversations we just had.

The wisdom shared with the world will never be forgotten Master Mamady Keita.

We honor you and will always keep you in our hearts and hands.

Your wisdom inspired my entire generation of Djembe players. Forever your legacy will reign. RIP Grand Master, I will miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#ThrowbackThursday to last year when first graders at Jennie Moore Elementary School worked with ECM Instructor Wose of Charleston to explore the Gullah Geechie culture.

They learned songs, stories, and drumming rhythms associated with the Gullah Geechie culture. After completing five days with Wo'Se, the first grade students performed for Jennie Moore third grade students.

Calling all drummers and dancers! Help us set the stage for Mayor Tecklenburg to dedicate the restored praise house at DeReef Park.
When you truly want to understand an issue, you get in touch with an expert. And that’s exactly what the organizers of SustainFest 2019 have done.

To help students develop greater awareness and understanding about the College of Charleston’s Sustain/Solves theme for the 2019-20 academic year – food security – they’ve enlisted the help of two local experts who are well known around the South Carolina Lowcountry: Queen Quet, chieftess of the Gullah Geechee Nation , and Germaine H. Jenkins, the owner and head farmer at Fresh Future Farm.

Quet and Jenkins are the headliners for SustainFest 2019, taking place on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019, at 6 p.m. in Cistern Yard. The event is free and open to the public. In case of rain, it will be held in the Rita Liddy Hollings Science Center, room 100.

An annual event for students organized by the College’s Sustainability Literacy Institute, SustainFest is always a celebration – with food, music and more – and it’s an opportunity to learn about the various sustainability initiatives that are happening on campus and around the Charleston area. In addition to Queen Quet and Germaine Jenkins’ remarks, the crowd will also be entertained by DJ Collective Disparity (alumnus Jarod Aaronson ‘15) and African drumming from the Wose of Charleston dance troupe. There will also be food trucks on George Street. (with vegan options) payable by cash or credit card.

The African-American Roots of the Charleston Dance 02/03/2022

The African-American Roots of the Charleston Dance

In October, 1923, Running Wild was the first black show to introduce the Charleston to nonblack audiences. After its appropriation by a white show in 1926, the dance achieved a world-wide popularity second only to the black-inspired Tango, which came to Europe and America from Argentina. A third black dance to achieve wide success in the 1920s was the Black Bottom, which reached New York in Dinah at Harlem’s Lafayette Theater in 1924. Both the Charleston and the Black Bottom were theatrical adaptations of dances known to blacks in the South for a decade or more.
