Guillermo Cardenas

Drumming in the Valley (a chant for peace)

A concert in which the audience will be exposed to a wide variety of beat, color, and texture from different parts of the world, inter-related in a metaphorical way, providing plenty of aesthetic joy.

"In addition to possessing expertise in the Cuban and Brazilian bass rhythms of most Latin Jazz, Guillermo Cardenas is a virtuoso performer of Afro-Dominican genres ranging from merengue to seldom heard forms such as gaga, palos and pri-pri. He fuses these expertise with an acute sensitivity to jazz aesthestics, thus representing a unique voice in contemporary improvised music."

Professor Paul Austerlitz, Music Department, Brown University

The exact date of this concert is not known, but it occurred in the marked year around this time.
