2nd Annual African Xylophone Festival
May 6, 2006 - May 7, 2006
Makor, 35 West 67th Street
New York, New York
Genre: African

New York, NY—This May 6-7, New York City will play host to the second annual African Xylophone Festival, the only North American festival of xylophone music from across the African continent.  “AXF2” will expand on the amazing variety of xylophones presented last year--with the spider-webbed gyil of Ghana, the balafon of the historic empire of Mali, and the resonant embaire of Uganda, joined by the timbila of Mozambique, as well as the log-drum krin from the forests of Guinea, the spirited namaddu (tuned drums) of Uganda, and the metallic budongo of East Africa.

The African Xylophone Festival will be presented by Jumbie Records with Makor, the Columbia University Arts Initiative and the Center for Ethnomusicology at Columbia University.  The festival will span two nights of concerts at Makor and three days of workshops at Makor and Columbia University.  Admission to the Makor concerts is $22 in advance and $25 at the door.  *Passes to the whole festival, including admission to both evening concerts and day-time workshops, are available at
