Sacred Rhythms: from Africa to the Caribbean

July 18, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Explore the musical connection between Western Africa, Cuba, and points beyond. From artists as diverse as Bo Diddley, Chano Pozo and DJ Spooky, players and listeners (and dancers!) in the USA have craved the big beat that is Africa’s undying gift to the world. Using recordings and instruments, hear (and play) the secular and sacred rhythms that propel Latin music.   

We have a drum in our chest from the moment we’re born, so it is little wonder that we are drawn to powerful rhythms. Come join us and find your jam!
