Creole Choir of Cuba
Please Note: This performance has been moved to the Gorecki Family Theater at CSB
Experience passionate melodies, wild harmonies and richly textured arrangements that sound nothing like what you've heard out of Cuba before.
Members of the Creole Choir of Cuba are descendants of Haitian and Dominican migrants who came to Cuba in waves, first escaping slavery and then as laborers in Cuba's sugar plantations. The choir performs the vibrant dances, spectacular harmonies and colorful rhythms of the Caribbean in music that is little known outside of Cuba. They sing in Creole, Cuba's second language, a pragmatic fusion of African, French and other languages.
