Doo-wop is a genre of music that was developed in urban African-American communities in the 1940s, achieving mainstream popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s. Built upon vocal harmony, doo-wop was one of the most mainstream, pop-oriented R&B styles of the time. Doo-wop features vocal group harmony, nonsense syllables, a simple beat, sometimes little or no instrumentation, and simple music and lyrics.

Ramalama is the Centre Region’s newest doo-wop group and features, Tom Wilson, Jeff Brown, John Zimmerman, Luke Lorenz, Eric McGinnis and Amelia McGinnis.

Penn State Alumni Association is sponsoring “Music Across the Ages,” including Ramalama.
