On Sun Nov 8, UH Mānoa Ethnomusicology PhD candidate Kirk Sullivan will be joining us from the UH Instrument Collection to share some of its creative, sometimes surprising, and remarkable sound-producing instruments from parts of the world not included in the EWC Gallery exhibit "Sounds of the Asia Pacific."

About the UH Instrument Collection: Professor Barbara Smith began collecting musical instruments from around the world shortly after initiating the ethnomusicology program at the University of Hawai‘i in 1949. Today, the UH Instrument Collection includes over 2000 instruments from Africa, South America, Europe, the Middle East and North America as well as the instruments of Asia and Pacific which are currently on display at the East West Center.
