Take a journey around the world through music! From Latin rhythms and European folk melodies to African drumming, the Crocker's new Global Rhythms music series will have you dancing in your seat as you experience infectious beats and soulful melodies performed by acclaimed musicians from around the world. From Latin rhythms and European folk melodies to African drumming, the Crocker's new Global Rhythms music series will take you on an auditory journey around the world. Global Rhythm concerts take place in our Setzer Foundation Auditorium and are approximately 60 minutes long without an intermission. An audience Q&A session with the musicians will follow each concert.

Legendary Nigerian bassist and bandleader Babá Ken – who has performed with such luminaries as Afrobeat creator FelaKuti and King Sunny Adé, and headlined the Lincoln Center, The Fillmore, and Yoshi’s – will be joined by his band for a night of joyful music and infectious African beats. Playing a variety of hand percussions as well as acoustic guitar with voices in harmony, Babá Ken Okulolo & The Nigerian Brothers will perform spirit-soaring music from their homeland.
