Caribé brings the vibrant, passionate energy of Cuba to life, bringing together traditional and classic Cuban music forms with a contemporary setting to create a unique and mesmerising live performance.
Seeing Caribé is an immersive experience incorporating chants, stories, and percussive elements deeply rooted in rumba and Afro-Cuban spiritual practice, combined with archival footage of Cuban musicians. A melding of musicians and dancers from Sydney’s Cuban, jazz and Latin communities. The music and choreography integrates elements of traditional Cuban dance and music with a modern jazz aesthetic.
Nine-piece Caribé features Cuban dancer Adrian Medina and is led by renowned musician and composer Gai Bryant on soprano/alto saxophones and flute, along with percussionists Juan Carlos Allende and Steve Marin, Des Lee McIver – trumpet, Julian Gough - tenor sax, Des Cannings - bone, Josh Spolc - bass, and Daniel Pliner– piano.
Presented by Blue Mountains Theatre and Music Hunter.
