Rare Music: Out of Africa

Friday, 13 February, 4pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
Brenda Neece, curator of the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections, will discuss a recent acquisition of video and audio cassettes, slides, still photographs, and written records.  The materials comprise the fieldwork and research of prominent Belgian organologist/ethnomusicologist Professor Ferdinand J. de Hen, collector of Duke’s Frans & Willemina deHen-Bijl Collection of over 200 instruments from around the world. De Hen’s main interests are the history and structure of classical European, Indian, and African musical instruments. This program is a multi-media overview of these new African materials.  Co-sponsored by the Duke University Libraries and the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections.
