FIU School of Music Presents Grammy Winner Ignacio Berroa In An Evening of Afro-Cuban Jazz & Beyond

FIU School of Music Presents Grammy Winner Ignacio Berroa In An Evening of Afro-Cuban Jazz & Beyond

April 25, 2014
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center Concert Hall

10910 SW 17 Street

Miami, FL 33199

 

The influence of Afro- Cuban music goes beyond geographical borders and has left an undeniable mark on Jazz, America’s original art form.  Latin Jazz is considered by many to be a heterogeneous mixture of Latin rhythms. However, few people are completely aware of how the beats of Afro-Cuban music evolved and became central to Jazz music. Grammy Award-winning artist Ignacio Berroa is one of the greatest exponents of this fertile combination, the only drummer in the history of American music that has traversed the world of Afro-Cuban rhythms and Jazz drumming, creating a unique synthesis of both styles. Concert proceeds benefit the Israel “Cachao” Fund. Generously sponsored by WDNA, the Cuban Research Institute, and the Cuban –American Student Organization at FIU.

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum

10975 SW 17 Street

Miami, FL 33199

Dodard's work is unique and powerful, expressive and bold, and his use of ink, paint and metal is celebrated throughout Haiti's artistic community. While his Haitian influences are clearly evident, Dodard has stretched tradition and, in doing so, created a fresh Haitian sophistication that is uniquely his own, the very definition of "independence."
