He has worked with notable scholars and composers such as David Locke, John Chernoff, and Steve Reich. He held positions at the State University of New York, College at Brockport, the American Conservatory of Music and the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago before joining the University of North Texas faculty. He is the founder and artistic director of the Chicago-based African-American Unity Ensemble and a member of the advisory council of the African Music Caucus and Percussive Arts Society. Today, he is most sought after as visiting professor, lecturer, or consultant on the subject for which his name has become synonymous. In this collection, Professor G. Foli Alorwoyie has collaborated with Dr. David Locke, professor of musicology at Tufts University, to lay down for intending practitioners to follow, a methodic revival of the “old school” style of Agbadza music tradition – one in which song and drum are intimately intertwined. They have designed this text to be deliberate, pedagogic and easy to follow by experienced music scholars and music enthusiasts, alike.
