Description
Record Series 762 contains the administrative files of the AMAN International Folk Ensemble.
Background
AMAN was founded on the UCLA campus in 1964 by Leona Wood, Anthony Shay, and Philip Harland to encourage and pursue the research, preservation, and performance of traditional music and dance. Named for the Eastern European and Middle Eastern pronunciation of the biblical affirmative ‘amen,’ the ensemble performed for student groups and ethnic dance and music festivals. University Vice Chancellor Dr. Norman Miller served as an early campus advisor and later as AMAN’s first Board of Directors’ Chairman. As the ensemble attracted a community of skilled dancers and musicians, performance opportunities grew.
