Tanga, on Clave

Today we are featuring latin jazz, which typically employs rhythms that either have a direct analog in Africa, or exhibit and African influence. We started with Afro – Cuban jazz which is rhythmically base on clave, often with a rhythm section employing ostinato patterns from Cuban popular dance music. Many excellent, passionately dedicated musicians shaped through years that what we name today Afro Cuban latin jazz. In the program  you will hear some pieces which determined the future development of jazz.

“We play jazz with the Latin touch, that’s all, you know.”
