An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 23, 2019
De Sangre y Azucar seeks to preserve and disseminate Afro-Caribbean musical traditions and culture. Given the richness and diversity the Caribbean offers, these introductory classes seek to highlight the different musical rhythms of the Caribbean. These various yet interconnect traditions underline the shared history and culture of resistance that the Caribbean islands share. Some of the styles taught will be Rumba (Cuba), Bomba (PR), musical forms from DR/Haiti, and Afro-Panamanian styles.
This a pay what you can class no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Proceeds will go to helping paying the teaching artist.
