Soundstreams’ SALON 21: LATIN AMERICAN ENCOUNTERS

May 8, 2015 @ 19:00 - 20:00

FREE

Latin-instruments

 

Instruments from the percussion family, common in Latin American music,
 have defined a multitude of musical styles. Join us and discover how French Colonial culture influenced Cuban drumming, how the Cajon has been defined and codified through Latin music, and how Bollywood was redefined with Latin percussion. Three of Toronto’s versatile emerging percussionists share their experiences in an interactive exploration of these vibrant rhythms. Enjoy an intimate window into these diverse players’ practice as they prepare for our concert, Encuentros on May 24.
