Mr. Ben Caldwell will be opening his space, the KAOS Network in Leimert Park, Los Angeles, for Rincon Rumbero- an open rumba for drummers, singers, and dancers.
The event takes place from 3 PM to 6 PM, on Saturday, September 1st, and is free to the public - though a small food item for a community potluck would be appreciated.
All congas, clave, chekeres, katas, and bells will be provided. Please, do not bring your own instruments, as the integrity of Afro-Cuban drumming traditions will be maintained.
This is not not a free-form drum circle, but an opportunity to play and learn about rumba, and other Afro-Cuban drum-based music.
The KAOS Network is located at the corner of 43rd Place and Leimert Blvd (4343 Leimert Blvd).
