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 6. Jazz Latino & Spoken Word (with live performance by the John Santos Quartet & Rico Pabon)
Jazz Latino has also made a mark in representing issues of identity and non-conformity both with and without lyrics. We will review examples by Omar Sosa, David Sanchez, Miguel Zenón, John Benitez, Afro Mantra, Mezcla, Maria Márquez, and Los Terry. In this final installment of the series, The John Santos Quartet (Saul Sierra, Marco Diaz, David Flores) will perform a one-hour set live with spoken wordsmith extraordinaire, Rico Pabon. The Pabón/Santos collaboration has been evolving for over ten years and is known for the activist content of their themes.

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.
