ALST 204 - Performing Bolivian Music
Learn to play Andean music, focusing primarily on flute and panpipe genres from the indigenous Aymara regions of Bolivia. Students will also learn about the performance contexts in which these traditions are produced. Conducted bilingually in English and Spanish. However, no prior experience is required in music or in the Spanish language. Students are encouraged to take the course for the experience of immersion in musical and Spanish language practices. Students will work towards a public performance of this music during the Bolivian musicians’ residency. Additionally, students who have existing musical skills may choose to learn other Bolivian genres that utilize European-based instruments.
