Speaks to the concept of a strong percussive foundation combined with harmonic/orchestral elements of classical music.
The majority of contemporary projects in the Latin jazz genre have focused on woodwinds, brass and the rhythm section. Yet traditional Latin American music has firm and long established roots in the classical string tradition, an aesthetic that played a major role in the development of music throughout the Americas. Canto AmÃÂ©rica speaks to the revitalization of the concept of a strong percussive foundation combined with the harmonic and orchestral elements of classical music. Using both Afro-Cuban folklore and the multi-Grammy nominated 'Wayne Wallace Latin Jazz Quintet' as its foundation, La Orquesta Sinfonietta pairs the San Francisco Bay area's most acclaimed Latin musicians and singers with awarding winning classical performers from Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music. The result is a unique and dazzling combination of Latin jazz, folkloric Afro-Caribbean music and classical form and orchestration.
