New England Conservatory's Intercultural Institute schedules visits by world music practitioners. These offerings deliver culturally definitive music techniques, genres, and instruments played by musicians who have spent their lives understanding and mastering their specific arts. These programs are typically lecture demonstrations intended to expose audiences to the sounds of other worlds while providing an in-depth and expert analysis of the cultural, pedagogical, and musical nuances characteristic of the vast range of cultuvres and traditions being explored.
