Identity & Resistance in Cuban & Puerto Rican Music

6-class series co-presented by MoAD, YBGF and SFJAZZ
Wednesdays, August 6 - September 10, 7PM-9PM
Venue: W Hotel · 181 3rd St. @ Howard St. · Industry Room, 2nd Floor
SFJAZZ/MoAD/YBGF Members: $15/class or $80/series
Public: $20/class or $100/series
John Santos, Instructor


SFJAZZ continues this dynamic program co-presented by the Museum of the African Diaspora in partnership with our friends at the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival. In working-class Afro-Latin communities, nothing surpasses music in terms of cultural expression and documentation. Self-identity, education, resistance, escapism, and the concept of our history in our own voices are all embedded in the text and sub-text of traditional and popular Afro-Latin music. In this six-week lecture series, multi-Grammy nominee and SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director John Santos will focus on how a wide range of Cuban and Puerto Rican music addresses these issues. Recorded music, slides and videos will form the foundation for the lectures with ample Q&A.

No musical experience necessary— ideal for teens and adults.

IMPORTANT:
Please note that this series will not be taking place at MoAD this year due to a transformative renovation. MoAD In the Neighborhood will bring its programs to neighborhood locations; all but one of the classes will be held at the W Hotel just around the corner from MoAD at 181 3rd Street, SF in the Industry Room, 2nd floor. The class on Aug 27th will take place at the California Historical Society right across the street from MoAD, 678 Mission Street, SF. We apologize for any inconvenience!
