The Cimarron Project is an ensemble dedicated to showcasing the diversity of Afro-Cuban music and dance at its most traditional. They educate their listeners by introducing them to lesser known forms such as the Cuban Bata drumming style, Abakua music, Suku Suku, and Changui by weaving these elements into renditions of Rumba and Cuban Son.The ensemble features the profound knowledge and talents of master percussionist and steward of Afro Cuban traditions, Roman Diaz from Havana, Cuba. The Cimarron project focuses on the expansion of this living breathing culture.Through dance and music workshops as well as hot club and cabaret dance nights they explore these cultural currents provoking a fascinating interaction with their audience.For more information and for booking please contact Onel Mulet:
