BOONE - A concert and mini-symposium on the African roots of the
banjo will be held Dec. 6 at Appalachian State University.

Activities will begin at 3:30 p.m. with a panel discussion in
Plemmons Student Union's Blue Ridge Ballroom. Swedish-scholar Ulf
Jagfors, folklorist Cece Conway from ASU and musicians Daniel Jatta
and James Leva will talk about the Akonting tradition and the
evolution of the banjo.

Jatta, a native of Gambia, will perform on the Jola Akonting folk
lute, a predecessor of the banjo, at 8:30 p.m. in the ballroom.
Joining him will be Leva on the fiddle and Rick Ward, a mountain
banjo player and maker.

The programs are sponsored by the Appalachian Heritage Council, ASU's
