Jewish Music and Latin Rhythms will take you from the East European Shtetl to a swinging nightclub in Miami Beach and back. The pulsating rhythms will have you dancing in your seat!

The concert will explore how Jewish and Latino musicians worked together in the 1950's through 1960's popularizing Latin dance rhythms to new audiences especially Jewish audiences in South Florida. One way was to take Jewish songs or melodies and add the Afro-Cuban rhythms.

Presenter: Yale Strom, SDSU Jewish Studies Artist in Residence world renowned violinist and scholar with his band Hot Pstromi
