nkwiluntàmën: I long for it; I am lonesome for it (such as the sound of a drum) is an immersive sound walk through the riverfront grounds of Pennsbury Manor by artist Nathan Young. Young takes listeners across the historic site, experiencing sounds of music, voice, and environmental recordings. The original composition embodies indigenous agency, honoring and reimagining environmental song-making traditions that survive his tribe's diaspora across North America.

Advanced registration through this webpage is recommended. To experience nkwiluntàmën fully, please bring a smartphone and headphones with you. The experience takes approximately 40 minutes from start to finish.
