Ancient Egyptian Percussion - talk and performance at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

"The sounds of drums bring ancient pictures to life. Join percussionists Yousif Sheronick and Layne Redmond for a visual survey of ancient Egyptian percussion drawn from temple walls, reliefs, tomb paintings, and sculptures. After the talk, Sheronick and Redmond will recreate a percussion ensemble, as pictured on the walls of ancient Egyptian tombs"
