Juba: The Hidden Meanings of Music

Join us for the first session of our Children’s Summer Series!

Juba is a style of music that involves clapping, snapping, stomping, and making complex rhythms with your own body as a percussion instrument. By discovering its origins and understanding the lyrics of Juba songs, kids can learn African American history in a unique way. Kids will clap and sing a Juba song and have the opportunity to make and perform with percussion instruments.

About the Series:

Last year, the AAMI rolled out its inaugural Children’s Summer Series, with regular programming aimed at teaching our youth about African American history through fun activities. This year’s summer program, History Adventures, will give children the same opportunity to have fun engaging with history. The program will run every other Wednesday in June and July.
