Africa West Percussion Trio, whose members include Jamie Ryan, Ryan Korb, and Josh Ryan, is dedicated to the performance of African and Afro-Caribbean styles of music in addition to Western classical music for percussion. Their unique compositions and arrangements of folkloric styles are influenced by the members’ studies abroad and with master musicians in African and Afro-Cuban genres, as well as their backgrounds as classical and jazz musicians. The concept of "Africa-West" demonstrates not only the trio’s interest in folkloric music, but also how African and Caribbean music has been shaped by the experiences of Africans in the Western Hemisphere. This performance is co-sponsored by The Ohio State University at Lima and Rhodes State College as part of the Performing Arts and Lecture Series and programs provided by the Office of Student Activities.
