Because Kent State University University Professor Emeritus Halim El-Dabh made a habit of lunchtime drumming session on the steps of the KSU Museum, generations of KSU alumni see him as a drummer. These sessions, however, were a means to an end. The goal was to sense, to share and to amplify the energy of the place and the people–to mutually reinforce the joy of being human.
El-Dabh is a composer of serious art music and a dedicated teacher. Hear El-Dabh’s reflections and see him in action in this video (link).
