Creole Choir of Cuba Presented by Strathmore Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 8:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
This voice-and-percussion choir is made up of Cuban descendents of Haitians who have preserved their language and traditions across centuries. Blending ancient traditions with gospel and folk music, this exhilarating company has developed their own style that is “sleek, theatrical, socially conscious and full of joyful life. The performers have eye-popping, African-patterned costumes and strutting, hip-grinding dance moves…exhilarating” (The New York Times).
This performance is scheduled to have two 45 minute sets plus a 20 minute intermission. All running times are approximate.
