Music Makers: Slavo Rican Assembly
October 20, 2020, at 7:00 pm
Saxophonist, composer, and producer Jan Kus is a forward-looking artist who cultivates a genuinely cosmopolitan style in his music. A Slovenian native and Queens College Aaron Copland School of Music alumnus, Jan is also a founding member of the cross-cultural ensemble, the Slavo Rican Assembly. Its main focus centers on the exploration of similarities and differences between South Slavic, Puerto Rican and Caribbean musics, merging them into a cohesive and original sound. This combination unearths a musical style never heard before, featuring an attractive, heartfelt, and powerful rhythmical and sonic experience. **Plus, join us after the concert for a livestream Q&A with the artists.
