7pm | Roof
Join us on the Roof for a performance from UNC-Chapel Hill’s Cuban music ensemble, Charanga Carolina. Charanga is traditionally associated with danzón, a musical and dance style with roots in European classical and Afro-Cuban music. Charanga played a central role in the development of the New York salsa scene in the ‘60s and ‘70s and continues to play an important part in contemporary Cuban and Latin dance music.
UNC’s Charanga Carolina specializes in Cuban danzón, contemporary Cuban salsa, New York-style salsa and performs other Latin American music styles such as merengue, bomba, bossa nova, and tango. The ensemble brings these important musical repertories to life for their community.
Jam session to follow the first set.
