Join the next International Storytelling program at International House Davis on Sunday when Catherine Mandela puts on a musical program called “Instruments of the World.”
The performance will begin at 2 p.m. Mandela plays it all: a huge number of international and exotic musical instruments. While living in Italy she played in a reggae band and also performed with Middle Eastern musicians. After returning to California, she played tenor sax for the Star Duster’s Orchestra swing band and sax/flute/percussion for the Orchestra Variedad Salsa-Merengue band in the Bay Area. Immersing herself in world music, she created Sambandha ~ Music of the World and manages to travel, teach music and eco-musicology, and work for California as an environmental scientist.
On Sunday, Mandela will have instruments for children to play. For more information, go to her website at www.sambandhaworldmusic.com Br
