Transcript Expbring Roots Afro-Cuban Ensemble "To explore the roots of percussion in Africa, and its transport and migration to Cuba and America" In the 1990s America's diverse melting pot of cultures is represented in every aspect of education, particularly in the performing arts. Since the 1940s American percussionists have explored Cuba, and many jazz musicians (Dizzy Gillespie, Cal Tjader) have incorporated music by Cuban percussionists (Chano Pozo, Armando Peraza) to create the exciting music called Latin Jazz. By the late 1970s, Latin Percussion had been incorporated in every aspect of music with students increasingly expressing interest in studies of these exciting tech- Raymond Turner plays the vibraphone and Kevin Henss plays the marimba at the opening ceremonies of Diversity Month.

Latin music differs from Western music in one distinctive manner: in Latin music, rhythm and the role of the percussion section are the most emphatic; in Western music the melody in compositional structure and performance dominates. The UH Afro-Cuban Ensemble was created by Marvin Sparks to explore the roots of percussion in Africa, and its transport and migration to Cuba and America. This multicultural student ensemble expands the traditional percussion ensemble curriculum to include jazz improvisation and world per cussion techniques. Workshops explain jazz standards (arranged by Sparks and members of the ensemble) and traditional African and Cuban hand drumming rhythms/techniques. Within the workshop format, partici- pants are taught basic rhythms/techniques on the basic Latin instruments, with jazz chords/improvisation defined for the mallet performers. Arranging techniques for the group are explained and an example is used. - Courtesy of Afro-Cuban Ensemble The Afro-Cuban Ensemble performs in the UC as part of Diversity Month in February.
