Iya Ire – our local Rumba troupe – CD release – Painted Lady, Sun Oct 21
Sunday Oct 21, 2012
Iya Ire has laid down 3 AMAZING tracks featuring Jane Bunnett, Roberto Riveron, Pablosky Rosales– we’ll have it fresh-pressed for you, on sale at The Painted Lady on Oct. 21st! We’ll also be fresh off the stage from our concert with Chucho Valdes and Jane Bunnett.
Join us for back-breakin Afro-Cuban beats a lo cubano. Facemelting percussion with tight vocals Yoruba-stylz, Iya Ire’s rumba Sundays are only for rhythm-philes.
Come see us in our ‘natural habitat’, la calle, as we present the best of Afro-Cuban folklore. Maybe Chucho will come by… who knows?
PWYC ($5 min. donation suggested). 5:30 pm start.
Talk about dancing for the critics… here’s Orlando Cardoso of Iya Ire… as he dances and maintains the ambience at the rumba in Matanzas, Cuba… in the cradle of rumba itself, home of los Muñequitos… possessed by the spirit of Malanga, the most famous rumbero of Matanzas!
