Join us for an evening of listening to great music, dance and history. The National Autonomous University of México, UNAM, in Chicago designed this program for those audiences who love Latin music. If you dance Salsa or are interested in learning, this is your chance to explore the birth and evolution of genres such as Salsa, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha, Danzón, Cumbia, Merengue, Guaracha, Changüi, Sones, Latin Jazz and other traditional and contemporary rhythms.
Each music genre will be explored in terms of its place and date of origin, musical structure
and representative artists and tracks, from the arrival of African slaves to Cuba to the hot salsa clubs of Chicago. The workshop will be led by Arturo Castro, an expert Afro-Cuban musician who also teaches at various universities around the country.
