SFJAZZ, Yerba Buena Gardens Festival (YBGF) and the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) are pleased to continue our collaboration in this six-week Koret Discover Jazz lecture series hosted by John Santos, featuring live musical examples (in weeks one and six), in addition to selections from Santos’ legendary collection of audio and video recordings.

Week 3. Salsa
The Puerto Rican community of New York City birthed the Salsa phenomenon based in Cuban forms, rhythms and instrumentation in combination with several pan-Caribbean elements. The city’s socio-political environment had everything to do with the emergence of the musical style. We’ll be taking a close look at Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Eddie Palmieri, Ruben Blades, Willie Colon, Cheo Feliciano and Larry Harlow.

The Sounds of Resistance:
Music and dance remain foundation tools in the identity and documentation of the Afro/Latino/Indigenous peoples of the colonized Americas. As such, the arts become weapons of mass construction, giving hope, courage, clarity and love to countless distressed communities. Many musicians have forsaken the stardom attached to music in the Western world in order to preserve musical traditions that must evolve, but must not perish. This series will uncover Latin America’s long history of the musicians who have defined their art through progressive movements of social change.
