Caribe at the Hub in Springwood | Blue Mountains Gazette
Caribé will return to the Blue Mountains Theater on Saturday, May 7 at 8 p.m. with their high-energy Cuban music that will have you dancing again.
A mix of musicians and dancers from Sydney’s Cuban, Jazz and Latin communities. Caribé’s music and choreography integrate elements of traditional Cuban dance and music with a modern jazz aesthetic.
The ten-piece group will present an exciting new production Una Neuva Vida (A New Life) which celebrates the experiences of Latin American Caribé artists and their stories.
Group leader Gai Bryant says Una Neuva Vida is like a window into their lives, seen through their eyes and those of their family members.
“Una nueva vida is a spectacular collision of beautiful memories, creativity and multiculturalism against an original Latin jazz repertoire,” says Gai.
Caribé’s music is alive with spontaneous and improvised interactions that showcase Adrian Medina’s dancing, Enrique Berbis’ singing, memories, band anecdotes and music that gets you dancing.
“We’re starting this journey with Chilean bassist Cesar Marin and special guest Enrique Berbis,” Gai said. “Caribé wants you (the audience) to be a part of this evening by inviting you to participate, sing along and interact with us and our stories of new life.”
