Román Díaz Rumba Ensemble

Thursday, March 26, 2020, 7:30 pm
Old Chapel


Master percussionist, scholar, and composer Román Díaz is regarded as a “living repository” of Afro Cuban music. As a member of the seminal rumba ensemble Yoruba Andabo and mentored by the great Pancho Quinto, he aided in the creation of the sound that has defined rumba since the 1980ʼs. His mastery of Batá along with his rock solid groove on congas is present on countless recordings worldwide. His ensemble gives a profound and unforgettable cultural experience, presenting its own unique repertoire with a broad and deep sound that draws upon its tradition, and all the stations along the evolutionary journey of Afro-Cuban music.
