Music Makers: The Slavo Rican Assembly
October 20, at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Saxophonist, composer, and producer Jan Kus — a Slovenian native and Queens College Aaron Copland School of Music alum — leads the cross-cultural Slavo Rican Assembly (SRA), a project that unites some of the most notable musicians from the Caribbean and the Slavic worlds today. SRA melds together both sides of the unique musical equation between Caribbean and Balkan musics, creating a fresh and unique sound—a blend of South Slavic/Balkan and Caribbean folk music—rooted in tradition, and yet continuously flying away into new sonic galaxies. **Plus, join us after the concert for a livestream Q&A with the artists.
