Javoen Byrd, also known as Ayanwumi, in Oyo, Nigeria, will be hosting a drum demonstration on how Yoruba drums are used to speak the language and spread messages across townships. Javoen Byrd divides his time between Washington, where he is currently pursuing his MA/PhD in Ethnomusicology at the UW, and Ile Ife, Nigeria, where he travels to study Yoruba language, traditional Yoruba religion, and drum. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Olympia Timberland Library and will occur after regular library hours.
