As the end of summer draws closer,
we feel inspired to share some warm sounds
to keep the spirit alive.
Both of our guests are avid appreciators of Afro-Cuban music.
One just came back from a recent trip to Cuba,
where he recorded an album for Village Archives,
and will be sharing sounds from his experience.
A handmade limited run of these recordings
will also be made available as a CD
for purchase on this night.
Join us for a percussion-heavy evening of
rumba, guaguancó, and other folkloric sounds
from this island country.
FREE / 21+ / 10pm-2am
