Come join ROBERTO BORRELL as he explores the rhythms, the music and history of CUBAN CARNAVAL. This will be a 2-hour interactive workshop including videos, music and dance. Please wear comfortable clothing. Vamos a bailer!

Roberto distinguishes the musical differences between Conga and Cocoyé, reveals the origins of the Conga and shows the beauty of the traditional comparsas of Havana.
The workshop is being produced with Mission Cultural Center.
