The sacred drumming of Cuba is one of the most evolved and powerful rhythmic traditions in the world. In this concert, Brooklyn Raga Massive will expand upon their Raga Cubana series with this master percussionist, scholar, composer, and living repository of Afro-Cuban music from Havana, Cuba. Román Díaz, an olù batá (master drummer) came to the city from Havana in 1999 and has since become a mainstay in the avant-garde jazz and Afro-Cuban music communities. He will bring with him the outstanding vocalist Melvis Santa and a full rhythm section of batá drummers.
