pamde08_3.JPG The Pitt African Music and Dance Ensemble was on hiatus last fall and gave an open house this semester rather than a full-fledged concert, but what a night it was. Sister Marie Agatha Ozah (who recently completed her PhD in ethnomusicology), directed the ensemble and got the audience involved in a big way.
