Afro-Cuban Orchestra

Spring 2021

Taught By: Bobby Sanabria

Section: A

CRN: 1688

Credits: 2

In 1940 the Afro-Cuban tradition began right here in NYC. Machito and his Afro-Cubans under the direction of maestro Mario Bauza fused the harmonic sophistication of Jazz with the rhythmic complexity of Afro-Cuban music. The ensemble explores that rich legacy with a repertoire that encompasses the past, present, and future of the genre. The ensemble performs once a month at the Nuyorican Poets Café and a school concert every semester featuring a renowned guest soloist. High level reading and solo skills are recommended.

By audition, at the instructor's discretion.
