Enthusiastic 9-piece Afro-Cuban Jazz music and dance ensemble bring a spectacular collision of memories and multiculturalism, set against original Latin jazz. Caribé tours the country regions of NSW, with their trademark high energy music and dance.
Classic Cuban rhythms paired with impressive choreography by Adrian Medina define a show of spectacular artistry. This striking stage production with its steamy Caribbean rhythms will transport the audience straight to the heart of Cuba. The dancers exude unmatched elegance, exoticism and Cubanissimo against a backdrop of footage from Cuba while accompanied by a 9-piece band.
The group sound stems from Gai Bryant’s compositions which embody a knowledge of traditional Cuban styles integrated with years of jazz experience. The result is a maverick interpretation of traditional and classic styles that are performed with energy and spirit and shared with the audience via beautiful memories, creativity and multiculturalism from band members with Cuban and Latin origins, sharing their recollections and anecdotes of their cultural stories. This tour leads up to national harmony week and what a perfect way to celebrate our nations diversity.
