History

The Dudley World Music Ensemble was founded in 2002 by then ethnomusicology graduate student David Kaminsky as the Dudley House Traditional Music Ensemble. Since then, the ensemble has thrived as part of the music program at Dudley House, drawing from the incredibly rich and diverse array of musical talent from all over the world at the Harvard GSAS.
