Event description
Caribe’s Havana Return transports you from Armidale to Cuba for one night through dance, music, audience participation, stories and chants.

About this event

Havana Return is a bountiful collaboration between Cuban dancer Cruz Vazquez Borges and 8-piece Caribe on Saturday January 30th at NERAM, Armidale. Caribe’s Havana Return crafts Cuban traditional and classic music in a contemporary framework resulting in a show that is unique and fresh. Seeing Caribe live is a communal experience incorporating chants and percussive elements in a show that is engaging and entertaining for wallflowers and hipshakers alike.

The constant push and pull between powerful percussion and stunning melodies creates a dynamic tension that draws you in and invites you to dance. The percussion and rhythm section set up a crackling, thunderous bed for Cruz to move with and the group to solo over. Their enthusiasm and raw spontaneity is impossible to resist.

Dancer: Cruz Vazquez Borges

Musicians: Juan Carlos Allende and Steve Marin – percussion, Lee McIver-trpt, Gai Bryant-alto & soprano saxes, Tim Clarkson-tenor sax, Nick Barnard-bone, Josh Sploc-bass and Daniel Pliner-piano.
