A program on April 27 by percussionist Beverly Botsford will celebrate rhythm as a universal language. The free public performance will begin at 11 a.m. in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room of Wilson Library.

Botsford’s performance will feature drums and percussion from Africa, Cuba, and Brazil. Botsford said she also promises some “Carolina spice.”

Botsford is a cross-cultural percussionist and resident of Durham, N.C. She has more than 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience.

She will be joined in performance by drummer and dancer Andrea Woods Valdés, assistant professor of the practice of dance at Duke University and artistic director of SOULOWORKS/Andrea E. Woods & Dancers.

The program is the second of a series titled “Exploring Diversity Through the Cultural Arts,” hosted by the University Library’s Diversity Committee and supported by a grant from the University’s Performing Arts Fund.
