Celebrate the history and diversity of Afro-Latino cultures with these two virtuoso saxophonists from different yet connected backgrounds: Zenón from Puerto Rico and Terry from Cuba. Together, they blend Afro-diasporic folkloric elements, rhythms, and stories with modern American jazz in this innovative, interactive musical presentation.
As both Terry and Zenón explore cultural migration and diasporic exchange through music, founding Forum members Juan Flores and Kwami Coleman will provide brief comments of historical context, concluding the event with an open Q & A between the audience and artists.
This performance foreshadows the Forum’s Afro-Latin@s Now: Race Counts! conference, a three-day international event to be held in New York City on October 23-25th focusing on how race matters for Latin@s of African descent and the need to quantify that experience.
Presented in collaboration with the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center.
