Domingos en Arte: Calixto Oviedo y Son Sabroso
July 8, 2018
Calixto Oviedo is a living encyclopedia of Cuban drumming and percussion, ranging from the deepest roots of African-influenced folklore to the hottest dance music and the cutting edge of jazz. Oviedo was one of the creators of the dynamic timba rhythm when he was the drummer for the iconic Havana group NG la Banda, and his innovative, brilliant percussive techniques have made him the in-demand drummer for the Afro-Cuban All Stars. With a career spanning over 38 years, he has had the opportunity to play with numerous internationally known artists including Paquito D’Rivera, Arturo Sandoval, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Chucho Valdés, and Danilo Pérez, among many others.
Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center, is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Patio Courtyard that features live music by a wide range of Latino artists, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine.
Advance $13, Day of Show $18
