Description: Cleon’s Three invite you for a fun Afro-Cuban workshop and performance with special guest Gustavo Cereijo. The group will guide participants on an exploration and performance of ‘clave’ in Afro-Cuban grooves. Traced back to Sub-Saharan African music traditions, ‘clave’ is one of the most ancient musical rhythms known. In this workshop, the group will unpack the five stroke rhythmical pattern, which is popular around the world and an integral part of Latin American music to this day.
Cleon’s Three, along with Gus from Chukale, will also perform modern interpretations of Afro- Cuban grooves in the relaxed and intimate workshop setting.
Catering to all levels of interest and expertise, from those who want to sit back and listen, to World Music buffs, the curious novice, or the professional musician, this workshop will take you to the engine room of great Afro-Cuban groove and hopefully inspire you to create your own. Find or refine your inner rhythm at this unique workshop.
