People & Places – July 2022

Jul 5, 2022, 08:00 AM by Rhythm Scene Staff

The annual KoSA Cuba Drum & Percussion Workshop held at the Matanza's Jazz Festival was an outstanding success; we were so happy to return to an in-person event this year! Participants had a chance to study with some of Cuba's best artists, including Los Munequitos de Matanzas, Miguelon Rodriguez, and Ruy Lopez-Nussa.

Besides intimate hands-on classes, attendees were able to soak up the sounds of the immensely talented artists featured in the Fifth Annual Matanza's Jazz Festival. The esteemed artists featured this year were Emilio Vega y Paso al Frente, Ruy Lopez-Nussa y la Academia, William Roblejo's trio, Rodrigo Garcia y Ceda el Paso, Mestizaje, Los Munequitos, Afrocuba, and The Heat Transfer. Also included were students from the medium-level Matanza's Music School: Banda Provincial de Conciertos, Coro de Camara, and the Orchestra Swing Cubano. The level of musical artistry was mind blowing!

Plans are already underway for the next edition in April 2023, so mark your calendar now and join us for this unique and personalized musical and cultural experience.
