About Crocodile River Music
In support of Black History Month, JAMinc is proud to present an evening with Crocodile River Music on Wednesday, February 26 at In Your Ear Studios. Zach Combs, its Director, fell in love with the rich and diverse culture of West Africa while in Mali on a Watson Fellowship. Deeply inspired by his journey, Zach founded Crocodile River Music in 2011 to provide opportunities for both emerging and established artists from Africa and evoke new ways of cultural thinking.
As word about the mission of Crocodile River Music spread, requests poured in to expand into schools and community groups. In response to this demand, Crocodile River Music launched African Arts in Education, a fiscally sponsored project created to bring African music, art, and dance education directly to schools. Featuring Mali’s balafon legend Balla Kouate, a former Richmond Folk Festival performer and currently touring with Yo-Yo Ma, Crocodile River Music promises to fill Studio A with an irresistible taste of this rich tradition.
