As with Japan’s Yamato drumming group, feelings of togetherness, expressions of happiness, energy, and spirit are found in folk rhythms throughout the world. Percussion instruments bring the opportunity to experience a shared ancient pulse of the heart or the breath with the provocative timing and tones projected through objects that can resound to move the human soul.

The Voices & Choices Center provides a selected annotated list of resources available in the library to augment the current folk rhythms exhibit. Selected titles listed here are a few from Rohrbach Library’s collection meant to familiarize rhythm-makers and potential rhythm-makers with a wealth of instruments meant to be struck or shaken to extract the most intriguing of sounds.

This exhibit supports the Kutztown University Performing Artists Series' show by the
Yamato Drummers of Japan on Monday, November 21, 2005.
