Koret Discover Jazz Course: Afro-Cuban Roots 1

John Santos, Instructor

The profound Afro roots of Cuban folkloric music, song, and dance are at the foundation of contemporary Latin jazz, providing both an historic and living link to the Afro-Caribbean culture that gave birth to jazz in the U.S. Maestros Roberto Borrell, Erick Barbería, Fito Reinoso, and Bobi Céspedes join Santos in presenting live demonstrations of Afro-Cuban forms such as güiro, batá, bembé, arará, abakuá, iyesá, conga de comparsa, yambú, guaguancó, columbia and guarapachangueo.
