History of Salsa and Afro Cuban Rhythms Workshop

The National Autonomous University of Mexico, UNAM, in Chicago is proud to invite you to the  History of Salsa and Afro Cuban Rhythms Workshop.

If you dance Salsa or are interested in learning, this is your chance to learn the roots and evolution of genres such as Rumba, Cha Cha Chá, Danzón, Mambo, Merengue, Guaracha, Changüi, Latin Jazz, Son and other traditional and contemporary rhythms.

Each music style will be explored in terms of its place and date of origin, musical structure, representative artists and tracks, from the arrival of African slaves to Cuba to the modern hot Salsa clubs.

Come join us for a fun evening that will include an interactive presentation.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to reserve your spot.

Suggested donation $5

Parking available for $5 at 357 W. Huron. Starting at 5:45 p.m.

    Sounds very interesting. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it. Any chance that this will be repeated on a weekend? I'm in the NW suburbs so driving to Chicago during the week is difficult.
