Sustainable Wine Tasting & Cuban Music
@ 6th Global BASH
Friday, April 12, 2019 | 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Join us for an evening of top-shelf, sustainably produced wines and great Cuban music. OK Roots Music is teaming with Duet and Provisions Fine Beverage Purveyors for a wine tasting featuring a fleet of superb wines that have connections to Cuba & world music, followed by a concert with one of today’s best Cuban bands. It’s all part of the 6th Global BASH.
WINE TASTING: 9:00-9:45
CHANGUI MAJADERO CONCERT: 10:00-11:30
Big thanks to Duet and Provisions Fine Beverage Purveyors for making this fabulous wine tasting possible. Space is limited to 35. Ticket includes concert immediately following tasting.
The infectiously danceable LA-based band CHANGUI MAJADERO has distinguished itself with a modern take on changüí and its African influences. Founded by guitarist and vocalist Gabriel García, the band is the result of Garcías pivotal journey to Guantanamo, where he learned the changüí from the living masters and was inspired to spread the spirit of Cuban folkloric music, heavily sprinkled with East Los Angeles grit. Changüí Majadero has played Lincoln Center, SF Jazz, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and even Dodger Stadium. The band released its self-titled debut in 2016, compositions bristling with propulsive rhythms and evocative vocals. Changüí is the predecessor of Son Cubano & Salsa, a style of music specifically from the region of Guantanamo, Cuba. Its origins can be traced back to the 1800s, during the days of slavery. Changüí is to Cuba & Latin America what the blues & early jazz is to American music: the roots, the foundation of the popular Latin music we hear today.
