Afro-Cuban Traditional and Folkloric Music
The Afro-Cuban Folkloric ensemble will study and perform traditional folkloric Afro-Cuban music. In this course, students will participate in weekly supervised rehearsals. Students will gain experience in performing styles and rhythms as they apply to rhythm section playing and instrumental solo performance techniques in the Afro-Cuban style. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy and improvisational techniques.
