Caribé at BOOM International Festival of Percussion
8 October @ 7:30 am – 8:30 pm
Seeing Caribé live is a communal experience incorporating chants, stories and percussive elements deeply rooted in rumba and Afro-Cuban spiritualism.
Saxophonist Gai Bryant’s compositions craft traditional and classic Cuban song forms into contemporary original music that is unique and fresh. The percussion and rhythm section of Steve Marin, Yordan Medina, Harry Birch and Daniel Pliner set up a crackling, thunderous bed for Adrian Medina to dance to and the group to solo over. The enthusiasm and raw spontaneity of Lee McIver, Gai Bryant, Julian Gough and James Greening punching out melodies to move to and fiery solos is impossible to resist.
