Pearl Primus Visits LRSH

Pearl Primus, one of America’s greatest interpretive dancers and PhD candidate in Anthropology at Columbia University, performs at LRSH.

“There is music everywhere,” she said. “Music is in the wind whistling by my ears. I hear it in the quiet jungles, the soft wings of butterflies, the scraping of some creature through the bush. People make music when they walk and the sound of many, many footsteps become a powerful rhythm.”
