Joti Rockwell tunes his mandolin before Trans-Atlantic Steel: Appalachian Strings and Zimbabwean Keys, a faculty recital in Pomona College’s Lyman Hall on Saturday. Rockwell performed an unusual combination of African and Appalachian music with Tony Perman, who played several Zimbabwean instruments including the Mbira, a keyed instrument used mainly in rituals honoring ancestral heritage. / photo by Warren Bessant
