For Tony Artis, drum making combines his interests in music, aesthetics, and Nigerian Yoruba culture. His craft allows him to have a greater connection to the music he plays, because he believes that the drum takes on the maker’s voice. Come hear and learn from the master drum maker’s demonstrations and narrative stage discussions. The events will be free and open to the public, and are sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.
