Rainier Valley Cultural Center
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

On Saturday, September 8th, Arts Gumbo - CUBA! will take place from 6  9pm and will feature the vibrant Cuban dance music of Orchestra Zarabanda. Echoing the classic Cuban conjunto format, Zarabanda plays deep-grooving salsa, straight from Old Havana, and spices it up with modern arranging sensibility. Led by classically trained vocalist and clarinet player Elspeth Savani, Orchestra Zarabanda is known for its trademark sound of sultry melodies performed by Tom Bergersen on congas; Julio Jauregui, piano; Greg Koehler, trombone; Miguel A. Munoz, vocals; Jeff Norwood, bass; Richard Warner, flute; Alfredo Polier, vocals; Steve Smith, co-bandleader, bongo, guiro and Chris Stover, trombone.

After the performances at 7:00pm Cuban dance instructor Maiensy Sanchez will lead a Salsa dance workshop for audience members. A pioneer of the Cuban style of dance instruction in the Seattle area, Sanchez' teaching method draws from her stage background and her training in Cuban ballet.  Maiensy has also received training in jazz, modern dance, flamenco and West African dance and has performed at the New Orleans International Ballet Conference (as assistant to master Roberto Borrell).

At 8pm, Cuban food demos by local Cuban chefs will take place in the lower level. Audiences can participate in demos, learn about ingredients and methods of Cuban cooking and then consume the products.
