Dudley World Music Ensemble

Welcome to the Dudley World Music Ensemble website!


The World Music Ensemble at Harvard University is a collective of musicians committed to exploring music beyond the Euro-American tradition through (re)arranging, composing, and performing music and sound that draw on various national, regional, and local musical cultures.

If you are interested in joining, practicing and performing with us, contact Eric Puma, ensemble director, at ericpuma@g.harvard.edu We welcome musicians of all backgrounds - Western classical, folk, pop, jazz, and especially those from non-Western musical traditions. At this time (Fall 2017), we're especially in need of more percussionists (both drummers and players of non-Western percussion) and harmonic instruments (guitar, piano, etc.). 

We rehearse a specific song every week on Tuesday at 7-10 PM in the Dudley Fireside Room, Dudley House, Harvard University. We also organize rehearsals at other times during the week according to availability of musicians and needs, so if even if you can't come on Tuesdays, feel free to inquire more!

We normally have 20-25 total people in the ensemble, although only 4-10 people perform in each song. For more details on our musical philosophy, visit About Dudley WME.

You can also subscribe to our mailing list for updates about rehearsals and concerts.
