Afro-Cuban sounds bring the beat to COCC

The sounds and styles of the Afro-Cuban genre will transform COCC's Coats Campus Center in Bend into a music-spun presentation as part of Latinx Heritage Month at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 30. This event is free and open to the public.

Freddy Vilches, Lewis & Clark College’s director of Latin American studies, will offer a discussion and musical sampling in his presentation, “Traditional Music and Instruments of Latin America,” with a number of instruments on hand for demonstration. Featured styles include rumba, guaguanco, son cubano, salsa and Latin jazz.
