Spirology

September 26 @ 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM PDT

Spirology

Bay Area percussion maestro Michael Spiro, a 10-time Grammy Award nominee, created Spirology as a vehicle to explore the relationship between Afro-Cuban folkloric music and Cuban popular music. Combining the sacred chants of the Lukumí bata drums with the oldest form of Cuban charanga, the danzón, Spirology brings together some of the region’s finest Afro-Cuban and charanga musicians. Spiro brings unimpeachable authority to the project. In 2019 an album he co-led, Mabagwe-a Tribute to the Elders, was nominated for a Cubadisco award (the Cuban “Grammys”) in the traditional Afro-Cuban category, an unprecedented achievement. With a repertoire of Cuban jazz and sacred Afro-Cuban incantations, Spirology draws on the deepest roots while cultivating a brilliant array of Latin jazz blooms.
