Free and open to the public.
Omar Sosa shows how “clave” rhythmic patterns are the key to many streams of jazz, illustrating these influences with audio samples from various traditional African music cultures. Central to the conversation will be the amazing ways that seemingly divergent cultures can combine elements from their traditional musical cultures.
