Wednesday Night Live: Claudio Ortiz
July 6 | 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Charlotte music fans have followed Claudio Ortiz since 2015, when he provided the rhythmic spine of rock en Espanol band Patabamba, followed by stints with Chócala, Moa and more. Ortiz goes beyond those accomplishments with Areítos, building on Afro-Caribbean rhythms, particularly those from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and looping in real-time electronic samples. Ortiz also dives into the history of the music, pairing the performance with a mini-lecture on the traditions of Afro-Caribbean rhythms.
