Online Cuban Salsa and Timba Concert at Michigan Medicine

Online Cuban Salsa and Timba Concert at Michigan Medicine

Cuba has long been a hotbed of cross-pollinated musical styles, so it’s a perfect fit for the diverse nationalities and backgrounds of the Grupo Escobar quartet.

Grupo Escobar includes Steve Jarosz (guitar and tres, a three-course Cuban chordophone), Brian DiBlassio (piano), Eddie Caraballo (bass), and Owl DiBlassio (congas). They specialize in Cuban salsa and timba, capturing the spirit and energy of these forms, but allowing them to evolve by fusing them with cumbia, jazz, traditional Arabic and modern tropical rhythms.

This concert will be broadcast on the Michigan Medicine YouTube channel.
