Recycled Sounds with Dendê Macêdo
Sunday, April 22, 1-3 pm
Free family program; preregistration required


Mark your calendars now for a special celebration of Earth Day at the Michener! Recycled Sounds is a project that developed out of world renowned percussionist Dendê Macêdo’s interest in making instruments out of found materials. Over the years he has created a trove of instruments including a bucket shekere, a golf club berimbau, a tire drum, and a trash can snare drum that was incorporated into a line of instruments manufactured by Latin Percussion. Dendê began recording himself playing his instruments and ultimately began working with a loop pedal which enabled him to record short pieces of each instrument that would cycle, enabling him to layer each of the instruments while performing live. His performances on wild looking and distinctive sounding instruments convey an important message about our environment.

Following Dendê’s performance, join us in the Education Center to create your own musical instrument out of a found object. Participants are asked to bring a plastic jar or bottle, a small box, a cardboard tube, or other found object to use as the base for an instrument. All other materials will be provided.

This tour is produced and coordinated by Mamadele Foundation | mamadele.com

Unplugged Sundays @ the Michener are sponsored by the Leff Family Foundation.
