FIU School of Music Presents Grammy Winner Ignacio Berroa In An Evening of Afro-Cuban Jazz & Beyond
April 25, 2014
- 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.
