Keisel Jimenez: Timba - The Evolution of Cuban Roots
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
This clinic will cover the function of the different percussion instruments in the Cuban timba. Timba is a very complex musical style that developed in Cuba in the 1970s. It merges different genres, such as salsa, traditional Afro-Cuban folkloric heritage, and American influences of funk/R&B. Keisel Jimenez will show where this movement comes from and its foundations and peculiarities.
