John Santos' Filasoía Caribeña
Filosofía Caribeña is a specially commissioned, cross-disciplinary composing project by The John Santos Sextet, inspired by, and steeped in the great Afro-Caribbean traditions of jazz, resistance, the ancestors, and life from the creole perspective. In what has become John's trademark, Filosofía is a fresh twist on time-honored artistic expressions from the heart of the barrio that will illuminate the marvelous, undeniable, and unheralded historical connections between the Black and Latino communities, so often pitted against each other due to lack of information, and direct competition for government services such as housing, education and healthcare. A wide variety of Cuban and Puerto Rican musical forms, spoken word performance, and improvisation are also at the foundation of Filosofía. As it will be a work-in-progress over the next year and a half, these concerts at the Eastside Cultural Center in Oakland will be the world premiere of the first compositions of the project.


Filosofía Caribeña is made possible through a Commission by the East Bay Fund for Artists/East Bay Community Foundation and private donations, and is supported in part by the Ford Foundation through a grant from the NALAC Fund for the Arts.
