Kusun features African music, dancing at Coastal

The Kusun Ensemble, a group of musicians and dancers from Ghana, West Africa, will be performing on Saturday, March 6 at 7 p.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium at Coastal Carolina University. The performance is free and open to the public.

This ensemble includes past and present members of the National Ballet and the Pan African Orchestra. Although rooted in traditional African music, the group has developed a new style of music and dance they call "Nokoko" that fuses bass and lead guitar with traditional Ghanaian instruments to produce an electrifying blend of jazz and African music.

The program continues the 2004 African-American Celebration, a campuswide celebration of unity and diversity.

The series of events, continuing through early April, promotes the art, history, music and theater of the African-American culture, and is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Services.

Other upcoming events include:

- African-American Poetry & Jazz, March 30 at 6:30 p.m., Wall Auditorium

Coastal Carolina University students, faculty, staff and friends will present their own poetry, as well as that of other African-American poets. Renowned flautist Galen, nationally known musician on college and university campuses, will also perform during this evening program in the Wall Auditorium.

- Cultural Celebration, April 7, 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This annual, daylong festival that celebrates cultural diversity through music, art, food and more, will be held on Prince Lawn. The rain date is April 14.
