Session Abstract: While American choral directors have increasingly incorporated diverse music into their choral repertoire, Black music outside African and African American music cultures is virtually unacknowledged in choral classrooms. Additionally, Black music’s historical, social, and cultural contexts are often ignored. This session will explore two Afro-Brazilian music cultures—jongo and samba reggae—through learning activities based on Patricia Shehan Campbell’s World Music Pedagogy framework and Gloria Ladson-Billings' culturally relevant pedagogy theory. By the end of this session, participants will be able to identify the unique features in those music cultures. All participants will receive lesson plans on jongo and samba reggae.
