The Roots of Rhythm

As part of the January “It’s About Time” festival, this concert will explore the origins and evolution of the various rhythmic styles that made their way from all over the world to America, becoming part of the modern jazz idiom. John Santos, one of the foremost exponents of Afro-Latin music in the world today (as both musician and historian), will survey jazz’s “root system” by way of his remarkable personal collection of percussion instruments in performance with several special guests.

Special Guest: John Santos, percussion

Clayton Cameron, percussion
Taku Hirano, percussion
Monette Marino, percussion
