National Jazz Museum in Harlem 58 West 129th Street
Harlem, presents:
New Yor-Uba, Then and Now with Michele Rosewoman

Larry Blumenfeld interviews Ms. Rosewoman as a part of the Jazz Museum of Harlem series, Afro-Cuban Beat

More than 30 years ago, pianist and composer Michele Rosewoman’s parallel paths—jazz and Afro-Cuban folklore—merged into a compelling whole in New York through her New Yor-Uba ensemble. Rosewoman will describe the awakening that led to that group, reflect on her studies with the late Orlando “Puntilla” Ríos, and explain the cross-generational way in which she has rekindled that group’s flame.
