The California African American Museum† (CAAM) presents Rhythms of the Soul: African Instruments in the Diaspora a sight and sound odyssey that explores musical instruments from Africa, the United States and the Caribbean. The exhibition, contining through August 20, 2000, features more than 150 instruments. Visitors will discover how African music has given birth to American blues, jazz hip hop and rock and roll.† The exhibit, filled with sound domes, videos, dioramas, and hands-on activities, is housed in settings that include a simulated African village and a recreation of a 1960ís Motown recording studio.

Rhythms of the Soul: African Instruments in the Diaspora is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Target and FRIENDS, the Foundation of the California African American Museum. Rhythms of the Soul: African Instruments in the Diaspora is part of an artistic collaboration between the UCLA Fowler Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the California African American Museum, entitled The Heritage of African Music. Rick Moss, California African American Museum History Curator of the exhibit notes, The Heritage of African Music is intended as a national model for museum partnerships and represents an unparalleled commitment to cooperation and education in an urban environment. This collaboration is an unprecedented initiative in Black art, culture, and history and the museum community.
