Thread Name: Clapping along at trad sessions
Subject: RE: Clapping along at trad sessions
One of the worst instances of clapping along that I have witnessed was at a performance of traditional tribal music, by indigenous people from South or Central America, in a small to medium room of a major NYC cultural museum. Most or all of the clapping was done by children in the audience, who were part of a class outing, but their teachers did nothing to stop them.
