The Stanford Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble, directed by Murray Low, presents its Spring concert, Talking Drums, featuring special guests Jesús Díaz and Michael Spiro – two of the world’s greatest percussionists – who will showcase the role of percussion throughout the history of Afro-Latin jazz from its African folkloric roots, through the rumba traditions of Latin America, and finally to the ultra-modern Cuban timba and rumba jazz sound. The repertoire will feature Mr. Diaz’s original funky salsa timba compositions, as well as pure percussion and vocal pieces out of the Afro-Latin tradition.
