Beverly Botsford is a cross-cultural percussionist and educator, blending music, movement, and spoken word in solo and ensemble presentations. Embracing the drumming traditions of Africa, Cuba, South America, and her native North Carolina, she weaves colorful rhythmic tapestries with her infinite array of collected and homemade instruments.

In her performance “Drum Talk,” the audience will embark on a music journey, learning basic techniques of drumming from Africa and Latin America–with some Carolina spice. Using the rhythm of words and language, participants will learn some of the building blocks of music, steady beat, groove, phrasing, call and response, dynamics and improvisation.
