This ensemble is a celebration of the long history of Latin-Jewish musical fusions. You will learn how to negotiate the rhythms, melodies, style and fire of such soon-to-be-classic mash-ups of rhythms, melodies, tunes and traditions. We will learn to play the cha cha sher, merengue freylekhs, honga-samba, and Skasidic music (Hasidic ska). Freylekhs Descarga is the companion class to Steve Weintraub’s dance class, Ritmo Hulye. The two classes will come together at the end of the week, with the musicians playing live for the dancers. Open to pianists, bassists and guitarists, drummers/percussionists, horn and string players and perhaps (1) singer.
