AFRAM 337 Live Blog Post 2 – Jason Scrempos

As we are now getting into the dance more and more, we are seeing a variety of different movements and emotions being involved in it. The lady talking explains that they are talking with the music and making the music with their dance. And that the dances make the music into something even bigger than it is. She explains that they are not just dancing around but they are moving in a way that is meaningful. The unity of the people coming together makes it something really special. They can have meaning in dance that allows for them to not even use words to express how they are feeling. She explains that you give your thanks to the drum which means you are giving thanks to the people who came before you as well that did what they could to make all of this happen all the time ago too.
