World Music

The World Music program in the School of Music and Dance has a long and rich history at SDSU.  With the increasing importance of cultural awareness and understanding, the world music ensembles offer students a meaningful musical opportunity to engage in the artistic, social, and historical contexts of contemporary, non-western cultures.

Ensembles are open by permission, and many include non-majors as well as music majors in their membership.
