About the Artists: 


Ponta Aberta is a Rotterdam-based Brazilian jazz trio formed by Codarts alumni Lydia Stavraki (vocals, percussion), Renzo Navone Rodriguez (guitar) and Rafael Durão (vibraphone, percussion). The project started in Rotterdam during a hot summer day, while contemplating the sounds of the Brazilian masters. Ponta Aberta (“open bridge/ point”) fuses nostalgic melodies and powerful rhythms into new crossover music arrangements. The trio aims to explore the common threads between Brazilian and Latin Jazz music, yet embracing the Afro- Brazilian music tradition.

Valter Paiola is born in 1965, percussionist, singer and composer of Cuban music, is on the scene of Salsa, Latin Jazz & Cuban Folklore for over 30 years and is considered one of the best interpreters of the Caribbean tradition in Italy. In his career he had the chance to play and tour with many legends and masters of the latin music world such as Alfredo Rodriguez, Mario Papaito Muñoz, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez, Gregorio Hernandez Rios “Goyo Sr.” (Conjunto Folklorico Nacional), among others. He’s also well-known in the musical scene for his workshop experience. In the past years he was called to give workshops and masterclasses (about cuban folklore, rumba, abakuà, salsa, conga de comparsa, son cubano and much more) in many places and conservatories in Italy, Finland, Japan, Holland.


La Reunión is an innovative latin music collective based in Rotterdam that plays Afro Cuban music in a very particular setting: a classic salsa band with a viola and a flute instead of horns. With their original arrangements, they blend the sound of the viola and the flute within the rhythm section, creating a very characteristic sound. With their music, La Reunion aims to play not only traditional charanga music, but to also incorporate modern salsa and timba styles. Their show is both for the listener and for the dancer and for everyone who likes to enjoy the warm atmosphere of Latin music!

About the Workshop:

Music unites. And this is an undeniable fact. The drum does it even more, reconnecting the person who approaches it with his deepest rhythmic roots, and then putting him in communication with the community. I have seen this happen in different parts of the world through my 40-year experience in contact with Afro-Cuban drums. I believe that the rhythmic language of Afro-Cuban music is a perfect point of contact between different musical genres, because it is in fact “ancient”, but capable of adapting to the most modern developments in music. And then through the drum we access stories, in the form of songs, and we handle objects that take us back to truly dramatic moments in history, if we look in depth, such as slavery and segregation. But it is the drum itself and all the things that surround it that offer a key to understanding and communicating with our brothers of all races and ethnicities.

-Valter Paiola – Master of Afro-Cuban Music at the Timba in Rome, since 1992.
