Night Out in the Parks: The Birthplace of Rhythm
July 18, 2016 @ 5:45 pm - 6:25 pm
Roberts Square Playlot
Three drummers from the Pulse Beat Music Chicago collective serve as musical tour guides as they journey with audiences around the world to study the history, language, and geography of rhythm. The group performs rhythms and songs from the Middle East, Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, Europe and other regions of the world. The drummers are accomplished musicians from Chicago who have traveled the globe to study a wide variety of music and cultures firsthand. Audience members are invited to join in the rhythm-making as the show builds towards its festive finale.
This FREE show is presented in partnership with the Chicago Park District as part of its Night Out in the Parks program. All Night Out in the Parks performances are family-friendly, free, open to the public, and will take place outdoors (weather permitting). See all of Urban Gateways’ summer 2016 Night Out in the Parks performances right here!
