Nunemaker Auditorium, Monroe Hall

A concert and lecture by Bobby Sanabria.

Mixing song, lecture, and complex percussion rhythms, Bobby Sanabria will unlock the roots of Afro-Cuban music to show how the clave rhythm remains as the basis of much of hip hop, R&B, funk, and rock and roll in the U.S. today. He will also address the history of Afro-Cuban jazz and the impact that all Latin American music forms have had on U.S. Culture. Admission is free and open to the public. This event is sponsored by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences at Loyola University.
