  • A Journey Of Ancestral Music and Exploration of the African Ox Flute June 22, 2024  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Lancaster Community Library, 16 Town Centre Dr, Kilmarnock, VA 22482, USA

    Through instrument demonstration, storytelling, song, and
    oral history, Joshua Allen will present the history, tradition,
    music, and craft of the African ox flute. Mr. Allen learned
    traditional hymns trailing a plow and mule, walking in the
    fields with his uncle and grandfather on a plantation in North Carolina. Passed down from multiple generations over time, his family’s
    oral history was instilled within him as he was taught how to hand make African flutes from ox horns. Mr. Allen will explain the history of
    the instrument and share his artistry inspired by the roots and branches of his strong family tree. Mr. Allen has delivered his voice and
    talents on many platforms, including a gubernatorial inauguration, and he continues to share his deep and resounding voice to tell this
    musical story. We invite you to enjoy the day and the thunderous roar of Mr. Allen and his accompanist, Diana Greer, as they journey
    through time.
