The International Body Music Festival is headed to Wellesley College this weekend — and New England for the first time — and the public is invited to find out what all the snapping, clapping and stomping is all about.
The International Body Music Festival is a project of Crosspulse, an Oakland-based non-profit dedicated to the performance, recording and education of cross-cultural rhythmic arts.
The 2013 Festival brings ten artists from Brazil, Bali, Spain, and the United States to Wellesley College for a week-long residency. A wrap-up show will take place on Nov. 19 at the Berklee Performance Center, Berklee College of Music.
