Music @AMP: Latin Meets Jazz
June 28–July 2, 8:30am–3pm
Teen musicians will explore the exciting concepts, repertoire, and rhythms that are unique to Afro-Cuban music and jazz with locally acclaimed percussionist Ed Fast. In this week of “Latin meets jazz” music-making, participants will learn the energizing rhythms of bomba, rumba, mambo, and more, as well as explore concepts like clave, coro, montuno, and tumbao. A variety of percussion instruments—drums, hand percussion, and marimba —will be provided. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own stringed instruments. The week culminates with an outdoor performance on the evening of Friday, July 2 on the AMP property.
