THE ART OF MUSIC’s “Cuban B-sides” Cuban Music Spotlight

At the Bleicher/Hamilton Art Gallery
1431 Ocean Avenue
Santa Monica

The Art of Music is a groundbreaking series that presents criminally overlooked specialty
music for film and TV -- giving music supervisors, film composers, film directors and other
professionals a unique chance to explore niche music styles, learn about upcoming projects and forge new relationships in a collaborative environment.

Each The Art of Music showcase features musical masters performing a genre that lends itself to media but is generally under the radar. Cuban, Colombian and Mexican genres, Delta and pre-depression blues, and 1930’s period music are just some of what you can expect from this lively series, which occurs every other month on Sunday evenings at the intimate Bleicher Art Gallery on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica.

Join us September 25th for “Cuban B-sides” featuring Cuban masters Son Mayor performing changui (similar to the son that made Buena Vista Social Club famous, but with a more haunting, percolating texture). Orquesta Charangoa rounds out the night with their lively charanga -- unique with its earthy wooden flute and violins, yet extremely useful for all-purpose “Latin” score cues.

This event is a MUST for anyone with an interest in Latin music for audio and video
production, clearances, original scores or broadcast.

Beyond the performances and Latin music experts and resources on hand, composers looking for unique new textures will also find Cuban instruments for sale at wholesale prices. All attendees get a copy of the Latin Music Resources handbook, plus a chance to win raffle prizes including a set of handmade birchwood Cuban bongos and a copy of My Seductive Cuba, a new 328-page full color travel guide to Cuban arts and culture.
