Los Hermanos Arangos

video
Los Hermanos Arangos performance at Casa Las Americas, Havana, Cuba, May 2011.

During the Berklee Interdisciplinary Arts Institute tour of Cuba, May 2011, we had the privilege to play opposite Los Hermanos Arangos in this concert at Casa Las Americas. Los Hermanos Arangos specialize in Jazz and music of the Yoruba and Abakua traditions in Cuba. The family lives in the Guanabacoa the epicenter of Afrocuban folkloric music in Havana. All chants, rhythms and dances heard in this video are authentic. The addition of horns, piano and bass are in addition and compatible with the traditional elements kept in tact in this performance.

Los Hermanos Arangos' will be visiting Berklee College of Music in September 2011.
