HISTORY OF SALSA AND AFRO-CUBAN RHYTHMS WORKSHOP
UNAM Chicago, 350 West Erie, Chicago, IL 60654
April 22 -23, 2010 TIME: 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M.
The National Autonomous University of Mexico, UNAM, in Chicago is proud to
invite you to this exciting workshop. We have designed this program for those
audiences who love Latin music. If you dance Salsa or are interested in
learning, this is your chance to explore the birth and evolution of genres
such as Salsa, Rumba, Cha Cha, Danzón, Cumbia, Merengue, Huaracha, Changüi,
Sones and other traditional and contemporary rhythms.
Each music genre will be explored in terms of its place and date of origin,
musical structure and representative artists and tracks, from the arrival of
African slaves to Cuba to the hot salsa clubs of Chicago. The program is 4
hours in length and is divided into two 2-hour sessions; part one takes place
on Thursday, April 22, and we conclude on Friday 4/23 with an array of
wonderful historic musical tracks and a small wine reception.
