“The African Influences in Latin America” Music Presentation and Workshop

Mercado La Paloma’s Cultural Continuum Project presents “The African Influences in Latin America” Music Presentation and Workshop on February 2nd & 9th from 11 am – 2 pm.

We are excited to have Imodoye Shabazz, director of the Aladunn New African Performing Arts Group teach this class exploring the African roots present in popular Latin music, more specifically Cuban. The two days will include a live demonstration and talk on the Music, Dance and Singing associated with what Mr. Shabazz calls ‘New African’ Music with a special space for audience participation so that you can have a full experience. So, bring your drum and your dancing shoes! Please RSVP on the Mercado La Paloma facebook page. All ages are encouraged to come!
