The Politics and History of Kuumba

Today, the Kuumba Singers of Harvard College is a choir of more than 100 members. Its mission “to express the creativity and spirituality of black people through song” has endured over the years, though the group has experienced many changes and faced various challenges since its founding in 1970. “No one person can understand Kuumba completely,” the choir’s vice president Matthew S. Williams ’14 says. “It’s still a mystery to me how this group has been able to last and maintain so much of what makes it itself for so long.”

HRO Delivers on Dynamic Program

While the concert had its lows, the few peccadilloes pointed out here did not truly outweigh the many strengths displayed on stage. The orchestra was technically impeccable throughout the performance (or at least seemed so from a third-row balcony seat), and the music was nothing if not enjoyable.

The Insider’s Perspective to A Capella at Harvard

The founding of the Krokodiloes out of the Hasty Pudding Social Club in 1946 marked the beginning of a capella at Harvard. In the last half century, a capella at the College has expanded to include many groups that comprise a growing but tight-knit musical community on campus.

For the Record: "A Passion Play"

Much of the album’s greatness comes from this mature and sophisticated treatment of free will, which transcends the teenage-rebel ballads of contemporary bands. Ronnie’s progress through the underworld begins with his judgment at the hands of an unnamed chorus that shows him his life as a movie, numbering to him his earthly virtues, but more importantly, his failings.

Magik Markers "Surrender" Their Craft

The opening chords of the album immediately set the feel of "Surrender to the Fantasy." They are dissonant and jarring, yet syncopated and steady. The jumbled pounding of a guitar, bass, and drum kit comes in unrelenting waves, one after another, assaulting ears.
